Combarro is one of those places that you have to visit in a trip to Galicia, Declared Artistic Historic Site in 1972, is one of the most picturesque seaside towns on the Galician coast and more specifically in the Rías Baixas. The sea, the granaries at the foot of the coast, its narrow streets leading to the sea and its crossovers make of combarro a place full of charm in which we find many of the characteristic elements of Galicia.
Isla A Toxa - O Grove
Our next destination is La Toja Island, this is possibly the most famous island in Galicia. Its thermal fame, the spa and the Gran Hotel La Toja made it a benchmark for luxury throughout Spain We will cross the mythical bridge that gives access to the island that at the time was the bridge over the longest seabed in Europe and we will go to one of the most unique hermitages of Galicia covered entirely with scallop shells.
Ria de Arousa on catamaran
From the island of La Toja we will start a catamaran tour through the Ría de Arousa. The crossing takes place in the area between O Grove, A Toxa, Cambados and Illa de Arousa. We will enjoy a guided boat tour with underwater vision that will allow us to observe the seabed and that also includes an abundant tasting on board of steamed mussels and albariño wine or soft drinks. During the tour we will stop in a punt to see up close the mussel culture, oysters and scallops
Lanzada - Capela
We will continue our route to the beach of a thrown, there is the chapel of our Lady of a thrown, located on a ledge of land to the sea. It is an old place of worship full of legends about the Virgin of the Lanzada and pre-Christian rites of fertility, some of them still alive among the Galicians. We will also see the remains of an old watchtower of the ninth century and we will stop at a very important castreño site that in recent years is providing a lot of information about pre-Roman Europe.
The Albariño wine could not miss a tour of the Rias Baixas. We will stop at a winery with Rías Baixas Designation of Origin to get closer to the wine making process, starting with a guided tour of its vines vineyards and its facilities and ending with a tasting of its three monovarietal wines, 100% albariño
