Buenos días! from the wonderful country of España. Spain is a country that offers many different and exciting experiences for tourist. The Atlantic port town of Vigo is located just 20 miles north of Portugal, it is a location that provides a great Iberian experience.
A great place to begin exploring the town is from La Guia Hill. The hill is located to the east of downtown Vigo, in the suburb of Teis. At the top of the hill is a nice park that provides wonderful views of the city and the Ria de Vigo. Also atop the hill is a beautiful shrine Ermita de Nosa Señora Da Guía. The spire can be seen from most locations in Vigo. From here looking west provide wonderful views of the city and port. Looking east provides an excellent view of Ponte (bridge) de Rande. In both directions breathtaking panoramic views stretch out over the Galician countryside. And a close look into the waters shows rectangular structures which are mussel farms.
Just south of Vigo is O Pazo Quinones de Leon. This palace was built in 1620 recently restored to become Quinoes de Leon municipal museum that maintains the buildings and the gardens. This palace is sitting on a 17th century Castrelus Park which has stunning French gardens and fountains surrounding the palace. While pictures are not allowed inside the palace, the views are memorable enough not to need pictures. The furnishings in each room are remarkable with pieces coming from all-around the world. The alterpiece located the chapel is truly remarkable piece that should not be missed. Outside the gardens are well manicured and serve to make the outside space a continuation of the interior.
Every time I visit Spain I enjoy the sunny skies and wonderful hospitality. The town of Vigo, Spain provides a true Galatian experience.
