Rias Baixas – one of the least discovered treasures in Spain

Rias Baixas in Spain is not well known as such. It makes one of Spain autonomous regions and Galicia is a highly remote area in Rias Baixas that explains why this Spanish Costa is one of the least discovered treasures in Spain. Traditionally, the western coast of Rias Baixas was seen as poor undeveloped agricultural region. In fact, it was believed that due to its poor agricultural economy, the region was far from modernization.

Amazingly, the regions constant contacts to its history and past traditions is what makes it one of the most charming and appealing tourism destination points in Spain. Most of the population living here stays in Galicia and we can boldly say that Galicians are the local community of Rias Baixas. This community originated from Celtic and in addition to being very proud of the cultural and historical backgrounds, they also uphold their local language very high. Rather than feeling that they are less developed than the modern day Spain, they feel that this kind of life is what makes them unique from the rest of the population.
