Celebrating spring in Galacia – Celebrate spring with uplifting walks through the camellia adorned gardens of Galicia as part of Adagio‘s new 7-night gentle walking holiday ‘Pazos and Gardens of Galicia‘.
The region is famed for its traditional Pazos or manor houses, once the homes of kings and nobility, and their impressive gardens, which are especially abundant with fresh Camellias in April.
Showcasing some of region’s 8,000 varieties of Camellia, highlights include a visit to Pazo de Mariñán, taking in its magical camellia walkway flanked by the aromatic eucalyptus, bay trees and lavender, and the 17th century Pazo de Rubianes with over 800 varieties of Camellia surrounded by hectares of vines.
In addition, the holiday takes strolls along pilgrimage paths and visits the pretty coastal village of Combarro.
A guided walk through the old streets of Santiago de Compostela includes the must-see Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, one of the most important religious structures in all of Spain, as well as the Alameda Gardens, a haven in the city for rich varieties of flora and fauna.
Then round off the week with a boat trip on the Ria inlet whilst sipping local Albariño wines.
Departing 7 April 2019, Pazos and Gardens of Galacia starts from £1385 per person including flights, en suite half board accommodation, 2 lunches, activities as outlined in the itinerary and local transport. The holiday also departs on 5 May, 9 June and 22 September in 2019.
