Want to improve your swing but unsure where? Tired of planning a day’s golf only for it to be ruined by the weather? Bored of going to the same club, experiencing the same holes? Looking for some variety? All of these questions can be answered in one foul swoop. Visit Galicia, and more specifically the A Coruña province, to enjoy some of the most lush, green courses in Europe.
The Palexco, A Coruña Congress and Exhibition Centre, is a formidable contemporary space for exhibitions, congresses, seminars, presentations and conferences in the heart of the city. This impressive, contemporary glass building is a new landmark in a city famed for its rich history, and at the same time a strong indication of a thriving metropolis open to innovation and the future. The Palexco is the first congress centre in Galicia to be awarded the Q mark for Tourist Quality, which will serve in further promoting the centre and A Coruña, attracting more corporate events and tourists, thus confirming its status as a lively, bustling, modern city.
Galicia is a region famed for its rich history, proud and diverse culture, its jaw-dropping landscapes and the beauty of it scenery, so it is of little wonder that its setting is the backdrop for many a film and that so many directors and producers have chosen to chronicle its many stories and to relay its colourful past on the big screen.
Carlos Núñez is the world’s most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia and its richly vibrant, uniquely expressive sounds of Celtic traditional music.
Núñez was born in 1971 and raised in the Galician port of Vigo, where he first began to play the gaita at only eight years of age. He is an embodiment of the spirit and soul of the ancestral music of Galicia and has become an international icon through his successful endeavours to introduce the world to the native music of his homeland.
Amongst the many popular tourist attractions and ‘must see’ places to visit in the city of A Coruña, the one topping most travel charts year in year out is the panoramic glass lift that offers extraordinary views over the whole city, skyline and horizon. It provides a unique way to see the city and its surroundings from an entirely different angle and can be both a peaceful and reflective observation spot as well as a fun and exciting trip for children and families.
In a city such as A Coruña known for its stunning modernist architecture, the Plaza de Lugo stands out as a particularly fine example endowed with one of the most impressive buildings of its kind in the world. Built in 1912 by local architect Antonio López Hernández, Plaza de Lugo 13 represents Spanish Modernism at its very best.
Travelling through the Galician countryside you will become aware that this is a land of stone structures. Local granites combine with an ancient Ibero-Celtic culture to produce a mesmerising resemblance to other Celtic regions such as Brittany, Ireland and Great Britain. The many stone cottages, cathedrals, walls and farm outbuildings of Galicia play an important part in this, creating a rustic solidity and historic linkage that helps to define this region of Green Spain.
