GALICIA: BAIONA

In 2012 I spent some wonderful days in Galicia where we enjoyed a very pleasant weather. We went to some of the fantastic beaches in Galicia, we visited beautiful villages and fantastic National Parks.

Without any doubt, the most beautiful experience was The Portuguese Way of Saint James because of the nice people we met, the contact with nature and the satisfaction of having walked more than 115km without any drawback.

One of the beautiful villages we visited was Baiona, with its long promenade and clear beaches. The views from the castle and from Virgen de la Roca were fantastic too.


In Baiona we visited:

  • Castle of Baiona (Monterreal Fortress)
  • Old Town
  • A Ribeira beach
  • Barbeira beach
  • Parador of Baiona
  • Views from Virgen de la Roca
