Welcome to Baiona
Baiona (Castilian: Bayona) is a popular resort with its own little place in history: the shining moment came on 1 March 1493, when one of Columbus' small fleet, the Pinta, stopped in for supplies, bearing the remarkable news that the explorer had made it to the Indies (in fact, the West Indies). Then an important trading port, Baiona was later eclipsed by Vigo – but there's still a hefty reminder of its former importance in the shape of the stout defensive walls, towers and gun batteries of Monte Boi promontory jutting out from the town's waterfront.
