Full description
The first stop is the Natural Park “A Barosa,” an oasis of peace perfect for relaxing, spending time in tranquillity, and experiencing the sensations of the real and genuine Galicia: rural, calm, and away from aggressive tourism. Take a walk through the vineyards of the very prestigious Albariño. You will have the opportunity to learn about the production of this excellent wine as well as engage in a tasting of three wines of the denomination Rias Baixas in good company. The next stop is the shrine of “la Lanzada.” Get a full overview of this mystical place, established in the 9th century, and take a beautiful walk. Its importance is not only related to its history, but also to its location, on the shores of one of the most beloved beaches in Galicia. This temple welcomes and offers a ritual most popular in the light of the moon, which makes it even more unique in its genre. Combarro is a picturesque village, among the most beautiful in Spain, located on the banks of the Pontevedra estuary. Cross part of the bay of Poio. All this beauty is contained on a giant rock upon which it is built, by the granaries by which it is surrounded, by the houses overlooking the sea, and by several stone crosses typical of Galicia, called Cruceiros, which are on the site. Touring the characteristic streets and squares of this place, you have the possibility of taking a real and authentic journey through time, as well as visiting an area of great ecological value. The next stop is the island of Toja, famous for the production of soap and for its hot springs, located in an area called Red Natura 2000. Discover a small museum of the old soap factory and a chapel completely covered with shells. End with a tour of the sea, during which you will admire and face directly the production of mussels, oysters, and scallops, making different stops to contemplate the watering holes. Taste steamed mussels in great quantity accompanied by one of the best local Albariño wines (Condes de Albarei) and shots of Crema de Orujo. Pickup by bus at 9:15 AM Arrive in Santiago at 7:00 PM
