Tours and Tickets by Galicia Unveiled
Overview
Join us in an exploration of the globally acclaimed city of Pontevedra!

Famous for its rich heritage, but also for the many prizes it has been collecting in recent years owing to its revolutionary urban renovation, the quaint capital of the Rias Baixas region is a must.

This walking tour looks like this:
- We'll see the iconic Peregrina church and cross the threshold of the medieval walls.
- We’ll venture into the second largest old town of Galicia, going back in time through the narrow cobblestone streets and a myriad of squares.
- We’ll get to the ancient stone bridge which gives name to the city.
- We’ll visit what’s left of the medieval walls and some remarkable buildings, returning to the city centre via the old Town Hall.

And more :)

PS. Bookings will be confirmed by us personally as soon as humanly possible. Times are approximate: We may be able to offer personalised visiting times.

For other custom and pricing options please do visit the 'Galicia Unveiled' main website.

We had a fantastic tour with Xaon this morning. No question was too stupid to ask and his knowledge and insight into the city, Galicia and it's history and culture was second to none. We cannot recomend enough.

If you want to know in detail the history of Pontevedra, and Galicia in general, this is the ideal tour and the ideal guide. Xoan is passionate about his homeland, his nation and makes interesting relations with the other Atlantic nations. His English is perfect as he studied in Ireland. Sense of humor, great general knowledge and veryfriendly. A must do.

We were met by Xoan in the city center and visited both the beautiful old town and bits of the "new" town as well as per our request (we were curious about the places tourists don't normally go to and he was great in humoring us! Thanks!). All in all it was a brilliant experience. Xoan was totally knowledgeable and fun, the kind of person easy to get along with. He was definitely passionate about his country and culture and helped us a lot with a couple of tips for the rest of our visit to Celtic Galicia! We'd contact him anytime if we ever go back to little (but nice) Pontevedra. A charming city (we might as well!).
