About Galicia Guide

Galicia Guide is an on-going and constantly updated guide to the region of Galicia in Northern Spain. It takes the form of a large number of mini guides describing the locations that we think a tourist, or potential property purchaser, might be interested in visiting.

All the views and opinions included are based on the first hand experience of visits to the various towns and cities of Galicia, either by ourselves or our readers and we try to give the guide a personal rather than disassociated feel.

How the site came about

GaliciaGuide.com was started in March 2005 and was at that time primarily a guide to the town of Noia. The site had a very different look, but although visitor numbers were small, many people emailed us and most asked if we could include further information about the other towns and cities in the region. We duly obliged and the site expanded to cover the provinces, towns, cities and villages that now number over 80 individual mini guides.

In May 2006 we started to include limited commercial content, mainly as a result of visitors requesting information about hotels, flights and car rental. We now offer some of these services through Galicia Guide.


Contact us or add your view of Galicia

If you have visited Galicia and would like to add your view or opinion for the benefit of future visitors, please contact us with your thoughts, report or mini guide. We will be happy to add it to the site. Also, please do not be deterred if your opinion is a negative one. As you will see from our guides to Ferrol and Finisterre, we are not always totally complementary about the places we visit. Contact us at info@galiciaguide.com
