The municipality consists of five parishes: Baíña, Belesar, Baredo, Santa Cristina da Ramallosa and Baiona. Each with its own identity, and all playing a vital part in what Baiona has to offer. The stones that form the town’s streets and buildings, the salty scent of the sea, and the green fields and mountains, combine to make Baiona a truly special place that you just can’t help but adore. Baiona also has around 4 kilometres of beaches on which you can spend sun-kissed days catching a tan, or alternatively enjoying any of the multiple nautical activities on offer.
