Pontevedra is a beautiful city, nestled on the Galician Coast in northern Spain, and is an ideal location to explore the Rías Baixas (lower bays) and the many pretty beaches along the coastline. A mixture of old and new, the city offers much in the way of museums and interesting sites to visit. The winding narrow streets and welcoming plazas of the Old Town are wonderful to explore, with many shops, cafés and tapas bars.

Of interest to note, Pontevedra is one of the stops along a Portuguese route of the popular “Camino de Santiago” (Way of St. James) pilgrimage trail. Several pilgrims’ hostels are available at affordable prices in the city, a couple of which are mentioned below. Pontevedra was an important port back in the 16th-century and is well known for the fact that Christopher Columbus’ flagship, the Santa Maria, was built in the city.
