The main cities of Galicia
The main cities in Galicia are: "La Coruña", "Vigo", "Santiago de Compostela", "Ourense", "Pontevedra" and "Lugo". All these historical cities have a rich architectural, cultural and artistic heritage. The main tourist attractions in Galicia are the "Santiago de Compostela" Cathedral and "Obradoiro" Square, the "Camino de Santiago" Route finish spot, where hundreds of pilgrims arrive every day. The old town, declared World Heritage by UNESCO and considered by many as one of the world’s most beautiful cityscapes, is full of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque buildings. On the modern side, the "City of Culture", designed by 'Peter Eisenman', is a building complex that aspires to become an architectural reference point of the XXI Century.
Inside the urban area of "La Coruña", you'll find the famous "Tower of Hercules", the remaining walls of the city's old fortress, and "San Anton Castle" facing the sea. Among the multiple churches the city has, we highlight the "Santa María Collegiate" and "San Jorge" churches. Furthermore, the city has 6 'Blue Flag' beaches, where "Riazor" is the best known. Located inland Galicia, "Ourense" is noted for its thermal water springs. The "San Martin" Cathedral and the Medieval Bridge over the "Miño" river are some of the main attractions in the city.
Near the Portuguese border the biggest city in Galicia is located: "Vigo". Despite having an industrial environment, the city offers many possibilities. The city centre is full of buildings from late 19th and early 20th Century. The "Museum of Contemporary Art" of Vigo and the "Museum of the Sea" are two of the main attractions in the city. From the top of "Castro Mount", you have 360º views of the city and the estuary. The "Samil" beach, on the outskirts of Vigo, has more than a 1.100m length, and it's the most popular beach in the city.
"Lugo" is also located inland Galicia. It is a city with Roman origins. The city's original Roman Wall remains complete and very well kept, it's a unique case in the world. Perfect for a "roman era" film. The Romanesque "Santa María" Cathedral and the "Rosalia de Castro" Park are some of the other symbols of the city. Moreover, "Lugo" is inside the "Tierras del Miño" Biosphere Reserve, an area with high landscape value.

There is a great variety of typical foods: the "Padron" peppers, "Tetilla" cheese, octopus, "lacón" (steamed pork) or the Galician turnip tops, are some of the main raw ingredients of the local gastronomy. Wine also has great relevance, Galicia has 5 designation of origin spots for wine: "Rias Baixas", "Ribeiro", "Ribeira Sacra", "Monterrei" and "Valdeorras".
Galicia has a soft oceanic climate, and because of its irregular terrain, there are also various microclimates coexisting in the same territory. The average annual temperature is about 13,5ºC. In winter it decreases to 8,5ºC, and in summer it could come up to 19ºC. The minimum values appear in the eastern mountains and the maximum values in the coast, especially in the "Rias Baixas".
Most of the rainfall happens in autumn and winter. 25% of the territory has an annual rainfall average of 1.000mm; rainfall is higher than 1.600mm on 5% of the territory, and lower than 600mm in 2% of the territory. "Pontevedra" is the province with higher annual precipitation, followed by "La Coruña" and "Lugo". "Orense" has the lowest rainfall values.
Galicia has three airports: one in "Vigo", one in "La Coruña" and an other one in "Santiago de Compostela". This last one is the most important in Galicia, with around 2.500.000 passengers per year. All of them have direct flights to Bilbao, Barcelona, Madrid, Canary, Palma, London and Paris. The A-6 highway connects Madrid with La Coruña. The A-52 connects Orense and Vigo. The A-8 goes across the "Cantabrian" coastline till "Baamonde" and connects with the A-6. Among the Galician harbors, we highlight "Vigo's" harbor for its great cargo movement capacity; and "La Coruña" port, the second most important fishing harbor in the world.
