The so-called Rías Baixas come together between Baiona and Fisterra. These are the largest estuaries and those that spread uniformly from south-west to north-east, and are the Vigo, Pontevedra, Arousa and Muros-Noia. On its rough littoral, the coastal area of cliffs, rocks and sharp falls combine with broad areas of sand accessible from land, following the road network, or from the sea from one of the numerous ports.

From the viewpoint of the climate, temperatures are mild a large part of the year and there is considerable rainfall in autumn and winter, which causes the development of large forest masses blooming greenness and that travellers see at first sight.

The lands on the banks therefore break down into extensive tree-covered areas that intertwine with fields of crops where fruit trees, vegetables and vineyards surround villages, towns and cities, generating a cheerful varied countryside.

The richness and variety of the natural medium is complemented by the wide range of products of the sea or land, fish, shellfish and wines that delight any gastronome and can be tried both in the large cities such as Vigo or Pontevedra, and in the numerous sea towns.

In Rías Baixas art lovers will find many places to stop: fortresses, Romanic, gothic and baroque churches. Manors and magnificent museums like those in Pontevedra, Vigo or Bueu may be visited depending on the time available.

Furthermore, the festivals and processions throughout the year, particularly in the summer, will allow visitors to go further into the traditions and beliefs of Galicia.
