The Galician culture has been heavily influenced by the presence of the Celtic, Roman and Christian civilisations in the region during its history. It is, however, the way of life adopted by the population which has made Galicia what it is today, from maritime life to their relationship with animals (cattle-breeding, horses, etc.), influenced, as ever, by such significant cultural elements as St. James' Way.
Galicia's extensive flora and fauna are sure to add that extra something to your trip! From meadows to mountains, rķas to the sea, forest grounds to the top of the tallest tree, this region boasts some truly exceptional flora and fauna.
The landscapes of Galicia display a mixture of thousand-year-old forests which were once home to ancestral cultures, lush green mountains covered with damp vegetation, rķas which have shaped the history of a people and steep coastlines peppered with little bays of great environmental significance, not forgetting the many valleys and meadows stretching as far as the eye can see.
