Around Ria of Pontevedra towards O Grove.
Pontevedra • Poio • Combarro • Sanxenxo • Portonovo • A Lanzada • O Grove • Isla de la Toja
Pontevedra’s historic city centre, featuring great beauty and unknown to the great majority. We suggest strolling around its old town and visiting the outdoor cafés in its squares. To get the most out of your visit, pick up a map and rent an audio-guide in the municipal tourist office. Following the road along the coast towards Sanxenxo, stop briefly to visit the Monastery of Poio and its large “horreo” (stone granary), then continue on to Sanxenxo. Well signposted.

Not much to do except walking along its promenade, visiting the marina, its shops and enjoying what is inappropriately called the Galician “Marbella.” Portonovo is famous for its “raya en caldeirada” (ray fish dish).
