Baiona, la ría y el Castillo de Monterreal (enlarge to view it)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Bayona (en gallego y oficialmente Baiona) es un municipio situado en la parte meridional del Área Metropolitana de Vigo (provincia de Pontevedra), en el noroeste de España. Limita al norte con el océano Atlántico y el municipio de Nigrán, al sur con el de Oia, al este con los de Gondomar y Tomiño y al oeste con el océano Atlántico y el municipio de Oia. Pertenece a la comarca de Vigo.

En él se encuentra el Castillo de Monterreal, que actualmente tiene función de Parador Nacional. Tiene una gran importancia histórica, ya que en marzo de 1493 Martín Alonso Pinzón arribó a las costas de Bayona tras su viaje a América convirtiendo a esta villa en la primera de Europa que supo la noticia del descubrimiento del Nuevo Mundo. Por ello el primer fin de semana de marzo se celebra en el casco histórico de Bayona una fiesta medieval llamada La Arribada.

Baiona is a municipality located in the southern part of Metro Vigo (Pontevedra), in northwestern Spain. Bordered on the north by the Atlantic Ocean and Nigrán Township, south of Oia in the east with Gondomar and Tomiño and west by the Atlantic Ocean and the municipality of Oia. Belongs to the region of Vigo.

It is Monterreal Castle, currently Parador function. It has a great historical importance, since in March 1493 Martin Alonso Pinzon reached the coast of Bayonne after his trip to America in making this town the first in Europe who knew the news of the discovery of the New World. So the first weekend of March is celebrated in the historic center of Bayonne a medieval festival called the Arribada.
