Galicia tour - Praia das Catedrais

Hello friends!
In this post we will share with you the part that mostly fascinated us from our tour in Galicia: the municipalities of Barreiros and Ribadeo, the north-eastern border with the region of Asturias. 

The biggest attraction of these places is, without doubt, the Praia das Catedrais, a beach in the Cantabrian Sea where nature offers a truly unique spectacle: a series of rock formations, arches and caves that create a never seen before landscape. The majesty of these formations, remember really, as the name suggests, the perfection of the arches of the most impressive cathedrals and they seem built by the human hand. The best time to admire this spectacle is at low tide where you can physically cross the beach and with at the high tide when it seems to have discovered Atlantis, with the "cathedrals" under water. Immediately this place created a lot of positive feelings in us, making us rise the desire to make a photo shoot with a professional photographer, whose photos will be shared in the blog in September because we have carelessly forgot the dvd with the photos in Milan.

During our holiday in this area we stayed in one of the best hotels based on our experience: Casa do Merlo, located about 2.6 km from Praia das Catedrais, reached in about twenty minutes by walking on specially designed trails near the beach that allow you to immediately enjoy all the beauty of the place. This small hotel with ten rooms, family run, offers a welcoming atmosphere and makes you feel instantly at home, albeit very important aspect that is often ignored by many hotels, especially by the larger ones.

 The property is housed in a 18th century farm with a decor reminiscent of American colonial houses (like a Ralph Lauren shop). Xavi, the hotel manager, after working for years in the pharmaceutical industry, seven years ago decided to create Casa do Merlo and despite not having experience in tourism has created a really successful story, having fantastic reviews on the internet, showing that hospitality before being a job, is a human issue. Within the structure of the hotel, there is a small restaurant where you can enjoy traditional Galician food cooked with passion by Xavi's partner. For wine lovers, there is a fairly complete list, which keeps at the first place the wine As sortes, several times awarded as one of the world's best whites. Finally, do not forget to ask him to offer you the herbal grappa of the house: really cool!

Kisses to all of you,
Dimitri & Jola

Faleminderit shume Albana per fjalet e bukura! Atehere, ne udhetuam me Ryanair nga Milano per ne Santiago de Compostela (maksimumi 100€ per person vajtje ardhje, por varet nga sa perpara e prenoton sepse mund te gjesh dhe oferta shume me te lira). Aty pastaj morem nje makine me qera dhe levizem beme tour-in e rajonit te Galicias, pame disa qytete, ishuj, fshatra :-D Ishte vertet eksperience unike. Nese ke nevoje per ndonje info tjeter na thuaj. Ka edhe aereoporte te tjera po me sa u informuam ne, nuk kane fluturime direkte nga Milano dhe Santiago de Compostela ishte pika me strategjike. Perndryshe, nese fluturon per ne Barcelone, pastaj mund te marresh fluturime te tjera per ne Vigo ose Oviedo, jane diku tek 100€ vajtje ardhje nga Barcelona por jane pika me pak strategjike per tu spostuar.
