Pontevedra (Galician: [ˌponteˈβɛðɾa], Spanish: [ponteˈβeðɾa]) is a Spanish city in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula. It is the capital of both the Comarca (County) and Province of Pontevedra, and of the Rias Baixas in Galicia. It is also the capital of its own municipality which is, in fact, often considered as an extension of the actual city. Pontevedra is the provincial district court seat.
Mingle with cheerful fishermen in the pleasant village of O Grove. Wide, soft sand beaches meet exquisite and clean waters on this Spanish peninsula, which are as celebrated for their fruitful fish bounty as they are their beauty. Unsurprisingly, O Grove holds an epic annual seafood festival in October, where you can savor sinfully fresh shellfish while you pay homage to the gods of the sea.
