This is magical Galicia. The furthest north west part of Spain. The Galicia region is the chunk of land belonging to Spain but which geographically at least could almost be a northern part of Portugal. Bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. To the north by the Cantabrean sea. Its land borders in the south and east bordering Portugal, Asturias and Castilla Leon. As we approach Galicia from the dry flat dusty plains of Castilla, there is a marked change in the scenery.
A short distance from the hotel we can board a tourist bus which offers a multilingual commentary to help us identify places of interest. Vigo has an old ramshackle fishing district, with restaurants famed for a wide selection of tasty seafood. From the port you can take a small boat to visit the Cies islands, just a short distance from the mainland, watch the Tuna fishing fleet unloading their catch, or sit and watch the world go by in fashionable seafront cafes.
