Things to Do in Pontevedra
The town of Pontevedra is just a short drive or bus ride away from interesting places of great natural beauty. From ‘rias’ (estuaries) full of cliffs, to islands, villages and idyllic beaches. Some of the most recommended beaches in the area are Areas Beach, Portocelo Beach, Canelas (in Sanxenxo), Lapaman Beach (famous for its paragliding) or Loira Beach. If you prefer cultural activities that allow you to know better the essence of the Galician past, you cannot miss the Horreos of the village of Combarro. These are spectacular traditional style granaries where you can take spectacular photos (we recommend going in the morning to see the place at low tide!). The trip can be combined with a visit to the curious petroglyphs of Mogor. You can also dedicate a day to visit the spectacular Sotomayor Castle, built in the 12th century and in an exceptional state of preservation.
