Tourist Areas

We will help you discover Galicia the most natural way with an updated view of the tourist areas: the geodestinations.

Rías Altas

A Coruña, Ares e Betanzos, Ferrol, Cedeira and Ortigueira... These are the estuaries of northern Galicia that overlook the Atlantic.

A world to discover, grouped into two broad areas: A Coruña e As Mariñas -urban and worldly-, and Ferrolterra, enlightened and with a wild side.

Costa da Morte

Here was the end of the world, the 'Finis Terrae' of the Romans. Specifically, Cabo Fisterra, a fascinating place since ancient times, and where many pilgrims end their journey after passing through Santiago de Compostela.

Terras de Santiago

These are lands with a great artistic and architectural heritage.

Such as the monastery of Sobrado dos Monxes, a masterpiece of Renaissance and Baroque in Galicia.

Mariña lucense

Sea and mountains, rivers and estuaries, meadows and beaches.

In the Mariña of Lugo, forests merge with the sea. It is the green Galicia that overlooks the Bay of Biscay. About 100 kilometres of coastline dotted with natural wonders.

Lugo e A Terra Cha

This is a land like no other.

In contrast to the typical Galician landscape, A Terra Cha is a vast plain, the largest in Galicia. An plain of perennially green plains zigzagged by numerous rivers and lakes.


The mountain ranges of Os Ancares and O Courel extend through Lugo, on the border with Asturias and León. They are the largest natural area in Galicia.

Ribeira Sacra

A place touched by Heaven.

Stunning scenery such as the canyons of the River Sil – which are navigable – and landscapes that are home to one of the largest concentrations of churches and monasteries in Europe.

O Ribeiro

Located in the heart of the province of Ourense, O Ribeiro is a land of fertile valleys crossed by numerous rivers such as the Miño, the Arnoia or the Avia.

O Ribeiro is synonymous with wine.

Terras de Ourense e Allariz

From different heights, Ourense and Allariz seem look at each other.

Ourense, noble and Roman, from the banks of the River Miño. Allariz, royal and monumental, from the banks of the River Arnoia.


Celanova is a land of poets such as Curros Enríquez and Celso Emilio Ferreiro, no doubt inspired by the beauty of the surroundings.

The Praza Maior of Celanova is presided over by the majestic Monastery of San Salvador, one of the Baroque gems in Galicia.


Verín, Laza and Viana do Bolo are famous for their delirious carnival festivals – O Entroido –perhaps the most ancient and exotic carnivals in Spain.


Cabeza Grande in Manzaneda – nearly 1,800 metres above sea level –, and Pena Trevinca – 2,217 metres high – are the rooftops of Galicia.

A white Galicia that seems to touch the sky.


This is the heart of Galicia.

And here in the depths of a beautiful forest of pine, oak and chestnut trees, hides "A Fervenza do Toxa" a fabulous, hypnotic waterfall over 30 metres high.

Rías Baixas

Paradise could be here.

In the southwest of Galicia, from Monte Louro in Muros to the mouth of the River Miño, the Rías Baixas display their charms in blue and green, the colours of a sea that penetrates into the land.

From the Mariña Lucense in Lugo to the Rías Baixas, from Terras de Santiago to Ribeiro, 14 areas with boundaries formed naturally from its history and its unique features. Whether you like the beach or prefer the mountains, whether what you want is a cultural or culinary getaway, you'll find your place here.

And each one has its own attractions. In the Costa da Morte, rugged landscapes battered by rough and sometimes merciless seas. In Rías Baixas, sun and beaches of relaxing beauty. In Verín-Viana the most frenetic carnival you've ever seen. In Ribeira Sacra, high-hanging vineyards and impressive monasteries in unusual places. In Ancares-Courel, enchanted forests full of life.

From north to south, from east to west, enjoy the full extent of Galicia.
