Pontecesures

On the banks of the Ulla

Hotel A Casa do Río

The town of Pontecesures, located on the Pontevedra riverbank of the Ulla river, always had a great historical importance, result, to a great extent , of its extraordinary geographical location.

The Ulla River is the benchmark of this small and young municipality of Pontevedra (since it became independent from the neighboring municipality of Valga in the year 1925), and establishes the interprovincial limit, since on the other side of the river the well-known village of Padrón awaits.

Precisely, the bridge that connects both villas is one of the symbols of the village of Caesarea. The most credible hypothesis regarding its origin considers that it is a Roman construction of the first century, and that it was later restored in the 12th century.

The lamprey

We can not forget an inhabitant of the Ulla river, unique and enigmatic: the lamprey. Since Roman times, the most educated palates consider it an exquisite delicacy. This fish, of inversely proportional flavor to its beauty, is captured by the Caesarian sailors, known as valeiros, for the enjoyment of lovers of good gastronomy. In Pontecesures the way to cook the so-called “lady of the Ulla river”, is the most classic to the bordelesa, although the presentation in empanada also enjoys great prestige.

Pontecesures is a small and easy to travel population. If you want to contemplate in all its beauty, nothing better than approaching two viewpoints: Pino Manso and Galiñeiro. Both allow to certify, at a glance, the special link of Pontecesures with the Ulla river.
