Though Galicia's most famous sights are the cities of Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña, what makes Galicia an essential stop on your Spanish vacation is the landscape, the villages and the stunning Rias
, the sunken valleys that adorn the coast to the north and west (the Rias are often described as 'estuaries', but this isn't strictly true as not all of the Rias lead to rivers).

Fisterra (Finisterre in Galician) was just about the most westerly point of the Roman empire and was believed to be the end of the world. The fierce weather experienced here led credence to the Roman's sense of geography.
In addition to visiting Fisterra, you will also see the villages of Noia, the 14th Century Pontenafonso Bridge, Muros and Carnota, which has Galicia's longest beach and largest stone granary.
Three-course lunch is included.
Take advantage of the fact that Vigo, Galicia's largest city, is so close to the Portuguse border with this tour of Vigo and the town of Valenca do Minho in Portugal. Visit Castrelos Park and the gardens of the Palace Quinones of Leon in Vigo, before visiting Baiona (the oldest port in Galicia), where the discovery of America was first announced, and finally crossing the border and visit Valenca do Minho, an 18th Century fortress city located in the north of Portugal.
