Vigo (Bayona), Galicia, Spain

Vigo sits pretty along an estuary on the northwest coast in the province of Galacia, close to the Portuguese border. Boasting a lively ambience, atmospheric Old Town, and dynamic cultural scene, Vigo is the perfect seaside town, best explored by foot or bike. With its strategic location in the northwest corner of Spain, Vigo 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 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 every year. Vigo is your gateway to the UNESCO-Awarded town of Santiago de Compostela, the capital of northwest Spain’s Galacia region.


Testimonials

You have delivered us a honeymoon beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you so much, truly. Katie C.California
I hate Commercial Cruises. So I reluctantly signed up for a SeaDream, and after a week on the boat, I could not think of one thing that was not done to perfection. The food was great, the staff was spectacular, and having only 50 couples made this a private yacht cruise. I have signed up for my second cruise, and probably will only Yacht with SeaDream in my future. Pat M.Florida
