Portonovo (Pontevedra), Galicia - SPAIN
This postcard picture a nice little beach in Galicia (Spain) but it was sent from Portugal by my friend José of the Postcrossing official Forum - he went there three years ago and he recalls having a great time... it's not hard to believe, Galicia is a wonderful place, I went there a lot when I lived in Aveiro (to bad the waters are so cold!). Thanks a lot Zé! This postcard took 5 days to arrive!
Portonovo is a fishing village and tourist center within the municipality of Sanxenxo. It belongs to the parish of Adina. Situated in the Ria de Pontevedra, its climate is cold and rainy in winter and warm and sunny in summer. Tourism is the main economic engine of the town, and the temporary population in the summer months increases considerably. Three beaches are found along the coast for the town: Portonovo beach (also known as Baltar beach), Caneliñas and Canelas.
