Jacinta from Travelbiz joined Cluster Turismo de Galicia partners in the Dean Hotel in Dublin to learn more about the gorgeous region of Galicia in north-west Spain. With both Aer Lingus and Ryanair operating direct flights into the capital, Santiago de Compostela, the gateway to Galicia is wide open. Key trade operators from the region (VioViajes, Pilgrim, GaliWonders, InterRias, Art Nature and Rutasmeigas) were hard at work on February 9th highlighting the beauty and diversity of Galicia and vowing to get us walking the Camino! Ruben Lopez, Director of the Spanish TO in Dublin, regaled us with his fond memories of the area, the land of his forefathers.

Sr Cesareo Pardal (President of Cluster Turismo de Galicia) also spoke passionately of his beloved region. Of course, Camino de Santiago is familiar to many as a magnet for hikers, walkers, pilgrims and adventurers. The wonderful cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is renowned and the westernmost cliffs at Cape Finisterre were once known as the end of the world! But Galicia has many other wonderful attributes as the physical landscape is very green with plentiful forests, wooded valleys and, in fact, is quite reminiscent of Ireland! Rooted in history and edged by the wild Atlantic, Galicia has swathes of pristine beaches. In addition, the seafood is legendary, so healthy walkers will never go hungry! In medieval times, pilgrims wore a scallop shell to identify as Christians, so the symbolism continues today. This gorgeous autonomous region of Spain should be on everyone’s holiday list, so follow the scallop shell and get to Galicia.
