Baiona

A stunning and historic bay

Its location, sheltered from the open sea, makes Baiona an unbeatable place for pleasure craft and fishing boats.

The mild climate ensures pleasant temperatures all year round. The old quarter of Baiona was declared a Site of Historical and Artistic Interest by the Galician Regional Government on the 1st of March 1993, the 5th centenary of the arrival of the Pinta in Baiona.

Baiona is a significant place in history, as it was the first port in Europe to receive the news of the discovery of America. On March 1st, 1493, the Caravel Pinta, captained by Martín Alonso Pinzón, docked in these waters. A replica of the ship was built to commemorate the 5th centenary of the discovery and is now moored in one of the docks for visitors.

The municipality consists of five parishes: Baíña, Belesar, Baredo, Santa Cristina da Ramallosa and Baiona, each with its own identity, and all playing a vital part in what Baiona has to offer.

The stones that form the town’s streets and buildings, the salty scent of the sea, and the green fields and mountains, combine to make Baiona a truly special place that you just can’t help but adore.

Baiona is home to almost four kilometers of beautiful beaches where you can enjoy sunbathing and take part in various water sports.

The local gastronomy is of special importance, thanks to the excellent products that the sea and the land provide. A combination of tradition, innovation and quality ingredients makes for some truly delicious dishes.
