Celtic History

Galicia is one of the autonomous communities of Spain located in the northwest of the Peninsula.

It has in Spain the official status of a Historic Nationality, with historical roots out of the Iron Age (Castro Culture) and where the Celtic were living in the last millennium BC. Somewhere in that period, Galicia got its “Celtic” name where-from also Celta de Vigo -the first division football club of Vigo- is carrying its name out.

Galician Landscape

Galicia is part of the really green, hilly and mountainous region located in the north-west of Spain. Galicia is located at the the Atlantic Coast with a long coast line and many estuarine inlets. The mountains rise up to around 2000 meter in the east and the south. The coastal areas are a combination of rias and cliffs, the low rias (Rías Baixas)  in the south and the high rias (Rías Altas) in the north. Rias are submerged valleys where the sea penetrates tens of kilometers inland.
