Shelter from the ocean in Baiona
To the south of the Rias Baixas area (Galicia), the bay of Baiona seems to invite you to shelter from the ocean. A splendid historic town centre, mountains, riverside paths, the lush vegetation of the estuary, and an exquisite cuisine combining the best of land and sea. Baiona was the first port in Europe to hear of a new continent, America. The news arrived on board the caravel Pinta in 1493, and every first weekend in March they celebrate the Fiesta de la Arribada to commemorate it. The rest of the year, you can visit the Museum of the Carabela Pinta, a replica of the ship with a recreation of that important moment in history.
