Vigo, A Guarda and Tui
After absorbing the stunning view of the most beautiful of Galicia’s rías (estuaries) from the castro (Iron Age settlement) in Vigo, you can take in the beaches of Samil, Vao, Canido and, best of all, Playa América, before entering Bayona by passing between the Romanesque collegiate and the fortress of Monterreal.
The route to A Guarda is enjoyable and picturesque.
Monte Santa Tegra stands above the village and is an excellent
place from which to view the mouth of the Miño and the
reconstructed, prehistoric Celtic settlement.
You can make your way back by O Rosal and Tomiño, and pass through gorgeous countryside and by Romanesque churches until reaching the historically important city of Tui. You should take your time over the Gothic cathedral, its museum and cloister, as well as the old town, the church of Barbadelo and Monte Aloia, one of Galicia’s five natural parks.
