Pontevedra The Essential
Interesting
Pontevedra is a quiet provincial town. Although small, its historical centre has some beautiful buildings, testament to the power it used to wield. It is easy to get lost in the maze of little cobbled streets and squares. The city also has pleasant parks and gardens, as well as cafés that are inviting in winter and cool terraces in summer.
