Pontevedra is one of the most influential towns of Galicia. There is a long standing maritime history here as well as in trading. There are many historic buildings and the city has a reputation of being very commercial. It is surrounded by walls and the streets are cobbled adding to the old world feeling. The historic centre is the Plaza de Espana and the 19th century structure which is the town hall.
Another wonderful place to see as part of your tour of Pontevedra is the ancient ruins of the Santo Domingo convent. It is a national monument and dates back to the 14th century although the faade dates back to the 19th century. The city's patron saint is celebrated with a sanctuary built in the 18th century. It is called the Sanctuary if the Pilgrim. A place that is highly recommended is the Provincial Museum of Pontevedra and houses many historic images, artefacts and ruins.
Due to the major fishing port and the rich maritime culture, this city prides itself in offering top class seafood cuisine like oysters and mussels. Cockle and sardine pies are a favourite and you can enjoy your meal with one of the special Spanish wines.
There are two famous nature parks that are worth visiting. They are the National Park of Atlantic Islands and the Nature Reserve of Monte Aloia. Here you can see natural tropical vegetation and interesting bird and animal life.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
