About Galicia

Galicia

Galicia is a region located on the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula, with a population of 2,796,089 inhabitants. It is made up of four provinces: A Coruña, Lugo, Ourense and Pontevedra, each one with its own particularities. In Galicia, Galician is spoken. Once identified on the map, for those who haven’t heard of it, Galicia is wonderful, a haven of green forests, very long beaches  and stone cities. It is said that it always rains in Galicia, and it is true, and it can also be cold, but Galicians are accustomed to it,  but even if sometimes it is a nuisance, I think the rain is part of his charm.

Galicia is a region for all tastes, where we can enjoy a walk along the Atlantic forests of green trees, highlighting the oak, chestnut, and unique plants such as the "Toxo", or a day on the beaches of cold and angry sea, some of which still remain semi-virgin (fewer and fewer, which is a pity).

As for food, Galicia is a region rich in a wide variety of foods due to its position next to the Atlantic Ocean. Its sea products are known and imported throughout Spain and other countries worldwide.

The people of Galicia continue to keep a strong connection with rural life, agriculture and livestock, above all in the provinces of Lugo and Ourense. The cultural richness of the tradition and the friendliness of its people make Galicia a special place that everyone should know.
