Estaca de Bares
Estaca de Bares is the northernmost site on the Iberian Peninsula and, without a doubt, one of the best places to see in Galicia. It is also the point where the Cantabrian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean merge. Here you can enjoy the lighthouse of Estaca de Bares.
Mondoñedo is one of the most beautiful villages in Galicia. It has a large number of monuments and a historic center of great beauty, being the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption the point of reference.
Muralla Romana de Lugo
Another point that you can not miss if you go to Galicia is the Roman Wall of Lugo. It is a site of singular beauty that has been declared a World Heritage Site since 2000. Thanks to its excellent state of preservation, it is an example of a late Roman fortification of excellent historical value.
The wall, with a length of 2,266 meters, crowned by 85 powerful towers, delimits the historic center of the Galician city and has gone from being an obstacle to its evolution and growth to being a monument integrated into the urban structure and a source of tourist wealth.
Built as a separation and defense, it has become an integrating element between the old Lucus and the one that has developed around it. Its ten gates perform the function of uniting one part of the city with the other and its promenade, adarve, has become one more street that is traveled by native pedestrians and visitors.

Castro de Baroña
Castro de Baroña is a great spot from which to view the Rías Baixas. It is an important archaeological site consisting of 20 houses that were inhabited as early as the first century BC. All this is located in a beautiful natural enclave with unsurpassable views.
Without leaving the Rías Baixas we find Cambados. Specifically it is in the area of Arousa and it is a beautiful fishing village in which it is worth visiting areas such as the Tower of San Sadurniño, the Plaza de Fefiñás or the ruins of Santa Mariña.
O Cebreiro is a village that is considered the entrance area to Galicia if you take the French way during the Camino de Santiago. Here you can still see several pallozas, typical houses of the area built in stone and thatched roofs.
In addition, here you can also enjoy the ethnographic museum, the pre-Romanesque church that is preserved intact in the oldest part of the Camino de Santiago.
