My favorites are the wild beaches of the Coast of Death and Rías Altas. However, all of Galicia’s majestic coastline is represented below in my top five Galician beaches.
There are so many festivals in Galicia that you could spend an entire year going to a different festival every day. Gastronomical, religious, traditional, historical, agricultural–you name it, they celebrate it.

FOOD DEFINES A PEOPLE PERHAPS MORE THAN ANYTHING. More than song, dance, festivals, literature, or even geography. You are what you eat. And in Galicia they eat well. Better than Spaniards. The best food in Spain can be found in Galicia. Full stop.
