Vigo (Bayona), Galicia, Spain

The port of Vigo, with its strategic location in the northwest corner of Spain was constantly fought over during the many periods of war between Spain, Britain and France. Nearby Baiona is a town with a medieval historical center situated by the outlet of the Vigo Bay. On March 1, 1493, the Pinta, one of the ships from Columbus' voyage to discover the New World returned to Europe and arrived in Baiona, making the town's port the first to receive news of the discovery of America. A replica of the ship can be visited, and the event is celebrated each and every year. SeaDreamers have two land adventure options that include the sights and tastes of Bayona as well as the Unesco Awarded town of Santiago de Compostela.
