The coastal port town of Foz is located along the Rio Centino on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea – a beautiful part of Galicia, Spain, that features stunning beaches, picturesque landscapes, and rich history. The town has retained its roots as a small fishing village, but has modernized and now offers a contemporary holiday destination for local and foreign tourists alike.

Dating back to pre-Roman times, Foz still features existing remnants of the forts Fazouro and Pena do Altar. The town’s port was developed during the 16th and 17th centuries, and quickly became one of Galicia’s three most important shipyards. To this day, the town’s impressive seafaring tradition continues, despite a brief decline.

Hostels and hotels are somewhat limited in this smaller community, but accommodations can still be found for tourists in Foz. Staying at a local hostel provides a great opportunity for a relaxing getaway along the sea – with the beautiful beaches of Playa Rapadoira and Playa de Tupide nearby. There is a tourism office in town, which offers hotel and hostel guests the chance to find out more about what they can see and do while staying in Foz.

Apart from the Roman ruins in Foz, there are several other local landmarks that attract tourists to the area. The Basilica de San Martiño and the Manor of the Counts of Fontao are popular monuments in Foz, and visitors to the area can see first-hand this town’s history with a visit to the busy port – where so many Phoenician fisherman dedicated themselves to whaling.

The nearest airport to Foz is Asturias Airport, which features international and domestic flights from Oviedo and is located approximately 125km from the town. Slightly further away, A Coruña Airport brings in both international and domestic flights, and shuttles and taxis can transport visitors the 140km to Foz.
