Where the ancient greeks saw the end of the world, starts Galicia. In fact, Homero said about this region that the sun went down here to rise the next day from the east. Galicia - Galiza in galician - is part of the "green Spain", and it has not been yet conquered by the massive tourism. It is a highly appreciated destination for lonely planet travellers and, therefore, a region to be unquestionably recommended. People from all over Spain are well aware about this. In Galicia it is still easy to find old-time hospitality, which has become harder and harder to find in other parts of Spain. Along the seaside it is possible to find amazing long beaches to enjoy: saling, fishing, diving are well know activities. And, even in summer, a lot of beaches are not really crammed with tourists. The inland offers green, wide and open spaces, as well as mountains to go across. In the north it is possible to visit the astonishing Death's Coast, one of the most abrupt coastlines in Europe. A smooth breeze tempers the hottest days in summer and, thanks to the Biscay's gulf stream, it is possible to get a bath until the end of Septembre. Fish and seafood are an important part of the galician diet. 95% of the fish and seafood in Spain comes from Galicia. In this way, along the seaside the galician cooking offers a wide range of courses with octopusy, fish, crabs, clams, etc. All these products are fished by the fishermen from the full of locar color villages. It is a must to taste "pulpo a la gallega", galician octopusy, with red or white wine from the region.
