Many of us have journeyed to Spain to play some great courses, enjoy the warm welcome and weather and sample wonderful gastronomy, but there is a region of the country still remains relatively untouched by the travelling golfer. It’s Galicia in the far northwest.
Galicia isn’t your normal golfing destination: rather this is a place where you can combine your love of the sport with a thirst for history as well as indulging in some world-class spas and splendid gastronomy. The white wines, for instance, are some of the best produced anywhere in the world – and I bring you that statement after plenty of keen research!
The capital of Galicia is Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO World Heritage city that simply oozes history. St James the Apostle is buried in its incredible Cathedral that marks the end of the so-called ‘Camino de Santiago’, the Pilgrim’s Way which has been travelled by millions of people from all over the world for centuries.
