A personal view of Pontevedra city
To get a personal view of Pontevedra, both city and province, visit the web site of Colin Davies, a British citizen who now lives in and writes about this province. His highly entertaining and information rich personal web site is
Colin, who I must confess is a good friend, also has a daily blog which amusingly highlights some of Galicia's idiosyncrasies and, I believe, has a daily readership in excess of 1000 visitors. If you want to take a look, follow this link - colindavies.blogspot.com - it is highly entertaining.
The Galician Xunta (government) funded web site is called turgalicia. It has some useful content if you are looking for accommodation and some of its sections are in English language. Unfortunately, it is not very well designed and is difficult to use. www.turgalicia.es. The address of turgalicia is: Estrada Santiago-Noia. 3km. (A BArca) 15896 Santiago de Compostela A Coruna and the phone number is 902200 432 (internal).
If you speak spanish, then concellopontevedra.es is the official provincial site about the area.
