Baiona, both a tourist destination and an active fishing port, is located in the south of the Rias Baixas region, and is protected from the open sea by a breathtakingly beautiful bay. Its geographical location offers natural, unsurpassable protection for fishing and leisure sailing vessels alike.  The climate is characterized by mild temperatures throughout the year.

The town’s old quarter was declared an “Area of Historical and Artistic interest” by the Galician Regional Government on March 1, 1993, to mark the five hundredth anniversary of the arrival of The Pinta, a caravel-type vessel used by Christopher Columbus, which arrived in Baiona with news of the discovery of America.

The municipality consists of five parishes: Baíña, Belesar, Baredo, Santa Cristina da Ramallosa and Baiona, each with its own identity, and all playing a vital part in what Baiona has to offer.

The stones that form the town’s streets and buildings, the salty scent of the sea, and the green fields and mountains, combine to make Baiona a truly special place that you just can’t help but adore. Baiona also has around 4 kilometres of beaches on which you can spend sun-kissed days catching some rays, or alternatively enjoying any of the multiple nautical activities on offer.

And let’s not forget the central importance that our gastronomy plays, due, to a great measure, to the excellence of the products from our seas and lands, which when used in our traditional and innovative cuisine, result in dishes to delight and savour.
