The Galician Rias
The most unique feature of the Galician coast is the presence of the estuaries. They say that the Galician Rías, those long arms of the sea that penetrate the earth, are the imprint of the fingers of God who, after creating the world, placed his hand here to rest.
Lighthouses and wild beaches
If there is a sound in Galicia that never stops, that is the beating of its sea against the rocks. A rough sea in which even the most seasoned sailors experienced difficult times, and in which mermaids once inhabited according to legends.
In Galicia, the sea defines a unique landscape along its 1,200 kilometers of coastline. The beauty of its estuaries joins the unique cultural heritage linked to the fascinating maritime and fishing world, and its rich gastronomy.
