Rias Baixas Trip
At 8:45 am, we will pick you up in the Plaza de Abastos square of Portonovo where we board a minibus and head to the town of Pontevedra, an essential visit to the Rías Baixas.
We will talk about the history and geography of the area while we explore the historical center of Pontevedra. We will see the church of the Virgen Peregrina, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, we will contemplate the ruins of the convent of Santo Domingo, the beautiful gardens of the Plaza de la Ferrería, and much more.
The next stop is the tiny fishing village of Combarro, where we will discover its picturesque cobbled streets, magnificent granite crosses, and the numerous hórreos (raised granaries) on its coast. You will also find out why these old farmhouses are located so close to the sea.
Then we will head north to visit the island of Toxa. Famous for its soap production, this stretch of land is home to a wonderful chapel decorated with thousands of shells!
From the island of La Toxa, we will set sail on a pleasant boat trip along the Arousa estuary. We will see up close how they work on the rafts to hunt for the most delicious mussels. We will also enjoy a tasting session on board accompanied by a glass of wine.
Once the boat trip is over, we will leave you an hour and a half of free time so that you can eat in O Grove. Once we have regained our strength, we will head to Cambados, the capital of Albariño wine. We will visit a winery of this exquisite product to discover all its secrets and for a tasting of three varieties of wine.
We will finish the excursion to the Rías Baixas arriving at Portonovo at 6:15 pm.
