    Since the world is world, cities grow and grow, and grow again. Some towns come to absorb other smaller that surround them. This is our life… That is what happened in Vigo during the last centuries. Bouzas is a part of Vigo, with its own history, but now part of this great city of Galicia.

    The Ribeira Sacra is truly a magic place. This area of the North of Spain, located where the Sil and Miño rivers meet, is full of history and breathtaking natural landscapes. Especially worth mentioning are the spectacular Cañones del Sil, which one can admire navigating along the river or from one of the many observatories along the road.
