In September 2010 I went to Galicia. Travel by public transport. Got this breakdown by day:

16 arriving in Vigo 17 Tui 18 Ribadavia (1/2 day), in the evening finishing Vigo 19 Pontevedra

20 transfer in Santiago 21 same place 22 walking route near the beach of death: O Pindo – A Moa – O Pindo – Ezaro 23 Camarinas , from there on foot along the beach of death to Cabo Vilan and back 24 edge of the Fisterra , in the evening transfer to A Coruna

25, 27 Pontedeume , Betanzos , walk to the Natural Park Fragas do Eume 26 Coruña 28 hiking along the Laxe – Camelle – Laxe 29 Lugo , suitcase-airport-metropolitan

reserve: Ourense+Celanova reserve: Noia+Porto do Son reserve: piece of the Way

What drawbacks do you see in it? Where on this list is it not worth going? What interesting places are forgotten here?

Incorrect, in my opinion, in your itinerary is that you decided to travel by public transport. Trains are relatively expensive and if, you book a rental car at discounted rates it might even be more economical. Galicia is a place where it rains a lot, so your itinerary may change with the weather. And you’ll have to eat octopus and other sea creatures in Galician “pubs” instead of hiking in the natural attractions. Avoid touristy places in this sense, the price difference is very large. Again, if you have a car on hand, you can go anywhere. I was most excited in La Coruña. It is an unusual city. Although not as popular as Santiago. I think the question you have to ask yourself when you get there is, “What can you do all day in Pontevedra?”

I think the Galician octopus can be consumed in any quantity, which will allow you to get to know the local wines – another advantage in favor of buses and trains.

to see the well preserved historic center of the capital, including some interesting churches. If it rains, you can go to a museum and get bored, you can eat octopus and filloas pancakes.

This is the weakest part of your plan. There is a general strike scheduled for September 29 in Spain. There is a danger that the transport system will stand down. Probably all of it, including the airports: Huelga General

all gone! did not accidentally take out insurance with a day to spare is definitely the apostle James gave the sign

What is the best thing to do in such cases – overbook on 28 or 30?

It’s hard to take responsibility for this kind of advice )) But we, for example, we are leaving Spain on September 28. In countries with a strong trade union movement, you never know how long workers will defend their rights.

Hello Dear forum members, we are going to spend 3-4 days in La Coruña in September 2012 before the cruise. I am asking for help from those who have visited the city – where is the best place to stay, in what part of the city? Maybe someone will suggest hotels worth considering?

The plan is as follows – one day – Coruña itself, one day – Santiago de Compostela, and one day in question. I want something natural-impressive – cliffs, sea, beaches (although the beach may be too optimistic for the 20s of September). The car for rent is not planned to take. Please help us with advice!

I think the brochures offered for download have the answer to your question: http://www.turgalicia.es/pdfs/xfolletos . ubMenu_1=1

In the Santiago area you can go to Padrón and Noya, on the coast north of A Coruña you can visit beautiful coves with high rocky shores.

Galicia: questions, answers, tips

Going to Galicia in early November for a week. Are there any people who know the region? What would you advise to see there? For useful tips, many thanks.

Not an expert, just got back from there, was there for a week. was in Asturias last year. About Galicia. First, “Playa de Cathedralis” near Ribadeo, very beautiful rocks and caves that become accessible after low tide. Secondly, the “green” trails (marked on the auto-atlas), for example, we really liked going from Sanjenho through Pontevedra to La Canisa. Third, trivial, Santiago de Compostello. Another is the rests, which are near Vigo.

And an important point – Galicia is big, you can’t see it normally in a week. We kind of went all over, but a couple of times it was a bit hard, we didn’t see some things.

La Coruña and around

Jeffrey ” 01 Jul 2013, 20:38

Friends, please advise me where to go by car from La Coruña, with an ethno-, wine-, gastro- and just beautiful places. Nice rustic hotels with the same wineries and restaurants are especially welcome. Time for 3 full days and nights. Thank you very much!

Sanyago de Compostella, Ferrol, Orense , Lugo. Camariñas, Laaje, Costa de Morte (“Coast of Death”) – not exactly a touristy place, but beautiful. http://www.docotarino.com/ – hotel in Camariñas – very atmospheric with good food:) There’s one on Bookings, I think, too. Also if you can, stay in one of the Paradors – http://www.historichotels.ru/spain/catalogue/hotels They usually have authentic food and interiors.

I would flip a coin and either go right along the coast towards Ribadeo, then to Lugo and back. or left down towards Vigo, maybe a day to the islands (Isla de Ons or whatever is the right way). on the way there will be everything you need, every step would not be planned, there are very nice nice places. drive along the coast, diverting to all kinds of small roads and everything will be fine.

Isla de Cies, probably Located opposite Vigo, sail 30-40 minutes. schedule last year: Vigo – Cies: 09.45am 11.00am 12.30pm 16.00pm 18.30pm Cies – Vigo: 15.00pm 17.30pm 19.15pm 20.30pm Tickets must be purchased online several days in advance, do not buy the day before! buy here https://www.mardeons.es/opencms/opencms . oDestino=2.

The beach at Ribadeo is a must-see, but check the tide tables, they only let you in at low tide.

I would also suggest río Xallas waterfalls, they can be combined with Comarinhas.

Where to go on vacation in Galicia?

Peter2014 ” 22 Apr 2014, 17:51

I want to go without a car to some non noisy, non-industrial town that public transport was (bus station) and near the railroad to go to other cities by bus or rail. To the beach was wide, the sand is firm, the promenade. To the fish market was, cafeteria. Well, if the town was located so that something could not be too long to go on excursions. Is there such a thing in Galicia, what do you advise.

Folks, need advice, I arrive in Vigo in the evening, the next day ready to get acquainted with the city. 1) How many days would you advise to stay in the city? What can I see? (Vigo specifically, other cities nearby are planned to visit a little later). 2) Where can I get a map of Vigo? 3)How to get from the airport to the center and how long does it take? 3) Who has visited the beaches in Vigo? How far is it from downtown? how to get there?

For transportation from the airport http://www.aena.es/csee/Satellite/Aerop . sport.html the airport is small, tour bureau can’t remember, but there should definitely be maps of stores on the plan. We took a map at the hotel. a full day to Vigo is enough. Go swimming (swim) at Islas Cies. Tickets and departures from here 42.231670, -8.751919, get tickets in advance! you can buy online here http://www.piratasdenabia.com/islas-cies

Thank you! Is there a fee for the beach at Islas Cies? What I can not find on the site and how much to get there. Are there any storage lockers? I can’t leave my stuff on the beach all by myself.( And in general, when you get there, is it easy to figure out what to do and where to go?:)

If the islands are planned, I would score a couple of nights to increase the chances of good weather the first thing that comes to mind is Bayona, we specifically got off halfway in Nigrán in search of this, and then walked along the coast to Bayona on the way still comes across a beautiful Roman bridge over the río Miñor from Bayona there is also a boat to the Islas Cíes

Galicia: what to see, where to go, how to plan your route?

To be fair, the report is very short, apart from the main beach and the tent camp, there is nothing on the island, there are a few more beaches, which just need a little walk, my favorite is Playa de Nosa Señora and many hiking trails with views of stunning beauty here a map of routes, and here a description of the most-same views from Monte Faro and Alto del Príncipe besides the above company, float two more http://crucerosriasbaixas. com/ http://www.mardeons.com/ I sailed only the latter, I do not know how now, but a few years ago they were the largest tickets there is sense to take in advance if you get to the weekend, then the crowds of local go, but they all settle near the point of arrival, but the site shows the number of remaining tickets, easy to control the situation en route (if not confused, sailed 4-5 times) from 40 minutes to an hour with kopecks
