With its staggering landscapes, well-preserved medieval villages, picturesque wine regions, the beautiful Bay of Biscay, Asturias Principality and the Santiago de Compostela city, Northern Spain is a destination worth being explored. For a unique historical experience, Galicia would be the ideal stop. Galicia is significant for the pilgrim route – Camino de Santiago.Here
Intertwined with the Atlantic Ocean, Galicia is located in the northwest corner of the Iberian Peninsula and is a destination worth exploring. From high hills to rolling fields, Galicia is an everlasting green landscape. Its rugged coast, untouched beaches and mild climate makes Galicia the green jewel of Spain – our best kept travel secret. Each city, village or trail is symbolic and reflects Galicia’s heritage and traditions. The Galician culture takes pride in their Celtic heritage and native language, Galego and boasts some of the best seafood and wines in Spain. Here
