I am heading off to Galicia in mid-March therefore that I wanted to discuss my best reasons to go to with Galicia. It’s the region of Spain known for its mountainous terrain, word-class fish, and also for being the home of the most frequented pilgrimage sites on earth – Santiago de Compostela.
Walk of Saint James

This town is the final stage of the Camino de Santiago (walk of St. James). This is where the remains of the apostle St. James have been thought to be held. Every year, countless people laid out to walk the 500 miles (800 km) from St. Jean de Pied, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. But because of the extensive distance folks start their journey closer to the finish point, in Spain.
Another reason to see Galicia is the fact that it is packed with background. Since the time of the Neanderthals, most societies have proceeded through the region such as the Celts, Romans, Suevi (Germans), Visigoths and Moors (Arabs). Its past has undoubtedly influenced all aspects of its modern culture, and that is my 14-day excursion through the region seems a little short for me. I am already thinking how it is going to be possible to cover as much ground in this different place many believe to be its own country since I am always eager to explore every country in-depth. I cannot wait to explore this place. It will be you I’m excited to share with all of you and a trip to remember.
Here Are Only a few of my top reasons to visit Galicia and why it merits Far more time than I’ve planned for it:
1. Galicia is currently home.
2. Gallego, which is just another form of Spanish which is the origin for the Portuguese language is spoken by them.
3. The Romans ruled here over 2,000 years back along with their ruins are scattered all over the region. There’s even an ancient Roman lighthouse, the Tower of Hercules, however status. It’s located about 1 mile in The Coruña.
4. The fish is always fresh and they have the very best octopus on the planet.
5. Santiago de Compostela. This location is where folks from throughout the world come together after the daunting, but religious Camino de Santiago.
6. Because I am finally going back to visit the region I have been dreaming about for decades!
I intend to drive to Ourense, Vigo, Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña, also Lugo from Madrid, seeing with sites and little cities . I’m excited to finally pay a go to to the region that my brother in law has spoken a lot about. Hopefully next time’ll be walking there when I complete the Camino de Santiago, that can be solidified about the bucket record.
Stay tuned for town guides and videos, images, articles, pictures of Galicia.
