Oia is a coastal city located in Pontevedra, Spain. Its scenic coastline is found between A Guarda and Baiona, surrounded by lush mountains where untamed horses roam freely. Though next to the sea, agriculture is its primary industry instead of fishing. Its rich and vast cultivated lands are ideal for planting maize and raising livestock, like cows and horses.
The ancient city boasts centuries-old traditions as old as their buildings. The Real Monasterio de Oia is a 12th-century monument with Romanesque design and a baroque façade. Traverse the Ruta Maxica de Oia, an old winding mountain trail. It leads you to two waterfalls and the famous Mougas pools, with spectacular sea views. Petroglyphs that line the path bear mysterious historical markings.
Tourists and locals flock to its annual Rapa das Bestas. Witness this 5,000-year-old tradition, where Galician horses are rounded up by their owners from a year-long free roam in the forests, to be branded, trimmed and sold. While visiting, try one of these Airbnb vacation rentals listed below, for a memorable Oia experience in Spain.
