Pontevedra Guide

Pontevedra is a beautiful city found in a beautiful setting. The city has a wonderfully atmospheric old quarter atop the hill it’s built on and there amongst the old cobbled streets you’ll find some historic gems including the Virgin Peregrina Chapel which is very ornate inside. In winter, chestnut sellers congregate in the public square selling hot nuts to warm passers-by. In summer it’s the favourite meeting place of the locals and the scene of much of the city’s entertainment. Outside the city, you have the wonderful green hilly countryside of Galicia, a great location for a picnic of local produce.


Pontevedra Directions

Getting from Vigo to Pontevedra is very easy. The journey is around 20km and takes no more than half an hour along the AP9. Getting to Vigo Airport from the UK is simple too with a direct seasonal flight from London Heathrow with Vueling. At other times you’ll need to fly into a major Spanish airport like Madrid or Barcelona and connect from there.
