Sailing boat ride from Portonovo around estuary of Pontevedra and arousa

Do you want to discover the history of one of the most emblematic estuaries in Galicia?

The estuary of Pontevedra is one of the areas with the most seafaring roots and pirate attacks. Drake himself, one of the most bloodthirsty pirates of the time, attacked this estuary in 1589, looting the island of Tambo among other neighboring towns.

Faced with these attacks, local people used to take the images from their churches and hide them in safe places.

Apart from these pirate stories, we will spot one of the most picturesque towns in the area, Combarro, a land of humble people, tireless workers and the place of the largest concentration of granaries in Galicia.

Through this route we want you to feel Galicia as your own, a sensory experience you never forget. Do you want to try?
