Offering a unique experience that blends traditional Spanish life with Celtic connections, Galicia, Spain is often forgotten next to the popularity of larger cities like Barcelona. However, the area is home to a wide array of attractions for all types of tourists, some of which are included below:

– Santiago de Compostela: recognized as one of Spain’s most beautiful old cities, Santiago de Compostela is home to the Santiago Cathedral and labyrinthine, mossed-over streets. The square is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and visitors can enjoy most of the area on foot.

– Islas Cíes: made up of three islands, the Islas Cíes has been named the best beach in the world, but it is largely deserted in terms of visitors. Two of the islands are connected by a narrow stretch of beach and one island is a non-public bird sanctuary, allowing for some great views.

– Illa de A Toxa: perfect for a quiet getaway, A Toxa Island covers around 110 acres of land and has fewer than 50 residents. The island is located in the Ría de Arousa and is well known for its thermal waters and luxury spas and hotels.
