In the heart of the Rías Baixas, the city of Pontevedra was born in Roman times on the banks of the river Lérez, but reached its splendour at the beginning of the Renaissance with the discovery of America, as Pontevedra played an important role. Its rich history is reflected in an important artistic heritage that deserves to be discovered.

During the tour, we will visit the monument to the heroes of Pontesampaio, which recalls the Napoleonic wars, the archaeological ruins of San Domingos , the church of La Peregrina and its curious shell shape, an obligatory passage for pilgrims making the Portuguese route to Santiago de Compostela.
