Fortaleza de Monterreal

Reviewed By Williamrush - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Some of the reviews here are confusing. That is because what was once an ancient fort is now a luxury hotel called the Parador. We are staying there and it is wonderful. But imagine that all the walls, towers, turrets and amazing walks and settings around where the fort was, are open to the public and free. It is still beautiful and absolutely worth the trip and walk. It’s a 10-12 minute walk from the village of Baiona where you will find shops and very nice taverns. You could explore the grounds here for an hour or two. I believe there is also a paid tour, but we did not do it. Must visit!

Virgen de la roca

Reviewed By mazkNottingham - Nottingham

This monument overlooks the bay of Baiona & the Atlantic ocean coast road. You can pay 1.5 euros to climb the narrow steps to the top(not recommended if you are claustrophobic!) for even greater views. There is a nice little bar at the side of the monument with lovely views through the pine trees. A nice way to spend a chilled couple of hours.

Museo de la Carabela Pinta

Reviewed By lnschroder

Well worth a visit. For a small fee you can go see the replica of Pinta vessel used to cross the Atlantic at the time of Columbus. You really fell the vessel is small for such a journey. Respect for the Sailors that managed and dared the journey.

Reviewed By Oleg_Makeev - Курган, Россия

Приятная, ненапрягающая прогулка вдоль реки. Начинается маршрут прямо на пляже, далее по дорожке, наслаждаясь прекрасными видами, утесами скал, журчанием реки, можно пройти весь маршрут, который совсем не длинный, менее километра.
