Stops in detail
Excursion to Rías Baixas
At 10:00 from our office, it is necessary to be there 15 minutes before departure. The address is Rúa das Casas Reaís, 31 (3 minutes from the Cathedral and right next to Porta do Camiño, at the entrance to the old part of the city, where the French way passes). The Pick-Up / Collection service (only in Santiago de Compostela) can be offered only for some hotels and always with prior notice (there are hotels that are located in places where the bus cannot pass). If your hotel is not on the list, it is better to contact us so we can let you know if the service is available. Also, another opportunity (if there is a possibility) is for one of our staff members to pick you up at your hotel a little in advance.
We will visit an enchanted place, where a great variety of laurel, chestnut and oak trees live, crossed by the Agra river and by several waterfalls, not to mention the spectacular mills built in the 12th century. This oasis of peace is perfect to relax, spend time in tranquility and be able to feel the sensations that the true Galicia can give you, rural, calm and away from aggressive tourism.
We will have a walk among the vineyards of a very prestigious Albariño (important wine of the Rías Baixas), among the best in the world; It is not for nothing that it is sold and served throughout Europe, Asia and the United States.
Not only will we have the opportunity to get to know the production of this excellent wine up close, since for the participants it will also be included a tasting of 3 wines from the Rias Baixas appellation in good company.
This mystical place, established in the 9th century, undoubtedly deserves to be known in depth, accompanied by a beautiful walk. Its importance is not only related to its history, but its location must be taken into account, that is, on the shores of one of the most admirable beaches in Galicia. In all this, we cannot absolutely forget that this temple welcomes and offers some definitely popular rituals in the light of the moon, which makes it even more unique of its kind.
To get to this picturesque little town, one of the most beautiful in Spain, located on the banks of the Ría de Pontevedra, we will cross part of the Bay of Poio.
All this beauty is conferred by a giant rock on which it is built, by the granaries of which it is surrounded, by the houses that overlook the sea and by several stone crosses typical of Galicia, called “Cruceiros”, which are on the site.
Walking through the characteristic streets and squares of this place, you have, therefore, the possibility of taking a true and authentic journey through time, as well as visiting an area of great ecological value.
This relaxing island, famous for the production of soap and for its thermal waters, is located in an area called “Red Natura 2000”, but it does not end here: we can find a small museum of the old soap factory and a fully covered chapel of shells.
A journey over the sea, through which you can admire and face directly the production of mussels, oysters and scallops; We will make different stops to contemplate the water troughs and then be able to taste steamed mussels in large quantities accompanied by one of the best local Albariño wines (Condes de Albarei) and by shots of Orujo Cream.
The price is departing from Santiago de Compostela and requires a minimum of people.
