La Corona, Spain
La Corona is a Spanish region located in the north-western corner of the country. It is part of the Spanish autonomous community of Galicia, a region of vast green landscapes with a rich Celtic and Roman heritage which keeps, still today, a mystic and magic allure.

Today La Corona is a modern city, which combines its traditional agricultural and fishing industries with new successful industries, such as fashion and textile.

This region is also a perfect destination to enjoy sun and beaches, with an average temperature of 14º C and over 2,000 hours of sunshine per year. You can engage water sports such as surfing, sailing, diving, fishing, etc.


Islas Cies, Spain
An archipelago in the coast of Pontevedra in Galicia, the Islas Cies were declared a Nature Reserve in 1980.

The Rodas Beach was declared by The Guardian newspaper the top beach in the world. There is a camping area but permissions have to be reserved at the Vigo port. A supermarket, a visitor center and a restaurant cater to the visitors. There are no waste bins in the islands, however, so visitors are required to take their litter back to the mainland.


Leixoes, Portugal
Located near the Douro River mouth, Leixoes is one of Portugal's major seaports. It is Portugal's gateway to the world both for commercial and recreational purposes. The Port of Leixoes is able to receive cruise ships up to 930 feet in length.

Lisbon, Portugal
The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of history. Spreading out along the right bank of the Taugus, its downtown, the Baixa, is located in the 18th century area around Rossio. The Alfama, one of the oldest quarters in Lisbon, still retains much of its original layout since it largely survived the earthquake of 1755.
