Pontevedra exports an urban development and social awareness model that has earned it many national and international awards, as well as setting the example for cities that wish to modernise themselves.
Pontevedra is positioned in national and international circuits as a reference in urban quality and environmental recovery. More than 30% of the urban centre is pedestrianised, and 66% of transport is on foot or by bicycle. This makes Pontevedra a comfortable, kind, warm city, easy to reach and thus ideal to visit, work, and of course hold conferences, meetings, and trade fairs.
It also has the added value of its strategic and privileged location, as the main Galician cities can be reached quickly and easily, as well as large tourism centres in the province. Its size prevents rapid pace and stress. It is an ideal city to walk and enjoy, on foot or by bicycle, one of the best historic-artistic quarters in Galicia.
In addition, there it has an extensive, varied socio-cultural offering throughout the year, for all types of audiences. And of course the excellent, varied Galician gastronomy, with its local characteristics. Pontevedra has good restaurants where the Galician culinary tradition can be enjoyed, but also innovative venues serving dishes with a personal, creative touch.
The streets and squares in the old quarter are also the perfect place to enjoy tapas, with many bars and terraces with a great atmosphere throughout the year, but especially in the summer.
To enjoy all these resources, Pontevedra has a microclimate that ensures higher annual average temperatures than in the rest of the Galician coastline. In general, temperatures are very pleasant throughout the year.
All conference venues and 4- and 3-star hotels, which include a Parador, are in the city centre, which makes it possible to organise any event extremely easily and comfortably, and also saves costs.
The city has 2 conference halls and an extensive hotel offering, fully supplemented by its meeting venues, its leisure, commercial, and cultural offering, all very near the main hotels.
