About the tour

Did you know that Galicia, Spain is one of the 7 Celtic Nations (Scotland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Cornwall, Wales, Brittany & Galicia)? In this region of North-western Spain, you will find remains of the Celtic past with many Castros (hill-forts) dotted in the mountains. On this tour come with Sean & Tiernan to explore a very remote, but amazing site on top of a hill at 158 meters high. Learn about the Celtic history of this area as well the Roman domination after that. There is also an ancient Guard Lookout made of granite stone to keep watch of invaders from all directions. In addition, it is thought to have been used as a Lighthouse to guide fisherman back home. From the hilltop, you will admire the best views of the tip of the peninsula of O Morrazo, Vigo Bay, and the Cies Islands! Don’t miss this chance to discover virtually an unknown part of North-western Spain with a strong Celtic Heritage much in common with the other Celtic Nations!

His interest into the Spanish culture has given him the ability to speak fluently in Spanish. Sean would be glad to translate and help with some basic vocabulary while on your vacation in Galicia, Spain. One of Sean’s many pastimes is the study of Ancient Celtic history, Galicia and it’s connection to the other Celtic nations (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and Isle of Man) has been his latest project and would love to share with you all the legends and stories of Galicia.

A fantastic tour. Sean has a great sense of how to build up tourist expectations and what to show us and when, so there is always something even more exciting still to come. This tour was a great mix of history, scenery, a sunset, ruins, and an old lighthouse on cliffs with the most spectacular sea and land views. Absolutely stunning and relaxing!
