  • View of Baiona's Parador hotel at dusk. Pontevedra

A seaside resort that you'll love to explore while soaking up the great seafaring ambience. The beach is sheltered from the open sea by a picturesque bay and it has a walled peninsula of lush greens that stands in stark contrast to the blue sea and golden sand.Read more...

What to see Be sure to enjoy a stroll along the promenade and around the old town centre. The first is a pedestrian-only walk of some 3.5 kilometres offering fabulous views across the bay. In the old town centre, you can explore the narrow cobbled streets lined with quaint houses and small churches. For a great view of Baiona with the bay in the background, we recommend going up to La Virgen de la Roca. This viewpoint has a monument 15 metres in height. You should also visit Monterreal fort on Monte Boi peninsula. There are three kilometres of defensive walls built between the 11th and 17th century as well as three watchtowers. While it is now home to a Parador Tourist Hotel, the fort remains open to the public. The sunsets here are truly spectacular. On the other side of the wall lies La Palma park. It's great to stroll around the gardens amid an authentic maritime setting. Festivities Baiona was the first port in Europe to welcome home a ship from the newly discovered Americas. It was a caravel called “Pinta” and a fiesta is still held in its honour every 1 March. In Baiona you can visit a replica of the ship.
