The province is in the region of Galicia, in north-west Spain. Within just a few kilometres, visitors can go from mountain landscapes to the coastline along the Rías Baixas estuary. It is full of beauty spots and viewing points overlooking the estuaries, including the outstanding Islas Atlánticas National Park and its magnificent beaches.
It is well worth discovering the treasures of the Romanesque Route, to see the traditional Galician mansions known as pazos, and visiting places in Pontevedra such as Marín, with its megalithic monuments; Vilaboa and Poio for their rock engravings; and La Guardia, Sanxenxo, Cambados and Illa de Arousa, all with fabulous beaches. Not to be missed is the capital, Pontevedra, and its historic quarter.
