Still largely untouched by international tourism, Galicia offers outstanding seafood and a strong connection to the ancient Celts. Steeped in history, Galicia often feels far removed from the rest of the country, tracing its cultural ancestry to these Northern tribes, who began settling in the area about 3,000 years ago. Celtic traits remained ingrained in everyday life even during the period the region was part of the Roman Empire. Fiercely independent, Galicians take great pride in their cultural heritage and architecture, and well-preserved World Heritage Sites and other attractions are readily found in the region’s towns and villages. Its varied landscapes include spectacular sea views and rugged mountains.
