We invite you to become a pilgrim like the ones that have traveled to Galicia since the 9th century, and discover Santiago de Compostela, and its impressive Romanesque cathedral, the coastal towns of Vigo or La Coruña, and all the smaller places like Finisterre, the place where land ends, and the coastal towns. Talking about wine, Galicia has some of the best whites in Spain, Alvariños in Rias Baixas and Godellos in Valdeorras and Ribeira Sacra. Ribeira Sacra is an astonishing area in the banks of the Sil river, where the vineyards are planted in terraces and the views are breathtaking. You can also find reds, but white is better with seafood.
