What's Pontevedra Like?

Located in the Galician region of Northern Spain, Pontevedra is well known for its traditional architecture, with the Basilica of Santa Maria and the Capela da Virxe Peregrina being particular highlights. The Convent of San Francisco is also well worth a visit thanks to its beautiful stained glass window. Head down to Area Cova Beach to enjoy a day of sun bathing, swimming or water sports. The Centro Arqueoloxico da Caeira is home to some fantastic archaeological exhibits: culture lovers should not miss out on the opportunity to pay this attraction a visit. You can relax with a coffee and some local culinary delights in one of the city's 'prazos' (public squares) and admire the architecture in comfort.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Pontevedra

When eating out, tipping small amounts in generally the norm. At cafes, bars, and more relaxed restaurants, it is usual to round up the change to the nearest Euro. At more upmarket restaurants, it is usual to tip around ten percent. Euros, by the way, are pronounced 'ey-oy-rohs' in Spain. In this part of Spain, you may sometimes find that every time you order a drink in a bar, you are provided with a small plate of food to go with it. The original meaning of the word 'tapas' is 'cover', and these plates were originally used to cover the glasses of drink to keep them protected from flies. This is the traditional Spanish way to eat tapas, and is an Andalucian custom that has made its way to the North in recent years. Why not learn some Spanish, too, to fit in with the locals and maybe start a conversation or two as well? You could start with 'hello' and 'goodbye', for example, which are 'hola' (pronounced 'oh-la') and 'adios' respectively.
