What's Pontevedra Like?
Pontevedra is divided into new and old quarters, although most visitors concentrate their attention on the flagstoned narrow streets, colonnades and sun-dappled squares of the medieval old town. The mansion houses of the Plaza (or 'Praza') de leña are a stunning introduction to elegant Galician architecture and now house interesting museums. These include the Castro Monteagudo building with ancient gold and silver artifacts and Spanish art masterpieces alongside the Garcia Florez building which exhibits striking 20th-century Galician art. For food lovers, the town market offers colorful arrays of local fruits, vegetables and fish. For many though, the main charm of Pontevedra comes from strolling the streets or sampling the local tapas and wine from a terrace table. The Pontevedra hotels included on the Hotels.com site offer the perfect base for a relaxed exploration of the town and perhaps a summer afternoon siesta.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Pontevedra
That Spanish phrasebook won't be entirely wasted but be aware that the language spoken in Pontevedra is more likely to be the local gallego dialect than formal Castilian Spanish, so a 'plaza' becomes a 'praza'. Don't be surprised when your wine is served in a ceramic bowl rather than a glass, a regional tradition. The wine will usually be the excellent local Albarino white. Galician cuisine is celebrated throughout Spain for the excellence of its seafood, and the regional specialty is delicious boiled or grilled octopus sprinkled with paprika and served on a wooden plate. Travelers, whether they are looking for atmospheric historic accommodation or the latest modern comforts, will find a diverse selection of Pontevedra hotels at Hotels.com.
