Excursions and Local Attractions
TOURISM & CULTURE / BEACHES AND HILLS / TOWN AND NATURE: Celtic and Medieval times left their trail throughout Galicia. Celtic “castros” and dolmens, a breathtaking architecture found in churches, bridges, and other buidings, “pazos” (castles) can be found both in the town itself and its surroundings. The famous city of Santiago de Compostela and the amazing Cies Islands (declared a Natural Reserve in 1980 and part of "The Archipelago Atlantic Islands National Park) are just an example of much more to be found. Many rivers and lakes depict a magnificent landscape. Stone mills are scattered here and there, provoking little musical waterfalls. Museums, aquariums, exhibitions, local festivals along the year are some of the interesting offers this awesome land nourishes.
