Welcome! This is Galicia
Galicia is the western corner of Spain. Corners are always areas of encounters of different realities . Galicia is green, is full of mountains and faces a rough sea and a varying climate. All this diversity can be found in its architecture. While for many decades Galicia was not following the construction development of the rest of Spain, last ones meant an updating: from extensive new cultural projects to detailed refurbishments. In addition a wide range of regeneration strategies are being developed in order to revitalize historic towns, to reorganize city sectors with problems coming from its accelerated growth and to face the current socials challenges.
This is the introductory section of Galicia: below you can find what to see and where to find interesting architecture, how to travel here, thoughts from our community as well as a global non-architectonic review of some key facts about Galicia.
From towns, to remote countryside locations, architecture that worth’s a visit is spread all around Galicia. Here we have featured a selection of  special locations. We hope you get inspired! Of course there is more to visit, if you already know what do you want to visit and it is not here please contact us and we will happily start working on a custom tour for your group.
