The front side of the print map shows the eastern half of Northern Spain from its border with France on the north to the city of Tudela on the south. It continues west to Cangos de Onís and Palencia. The reverse side of the map stretches from Cangos de Onís and León to the region’s western Atlantic coast.
Lush green meadows, snow-capped mountains, and verdant river valleys set Northern Spain apart from the rest of the country. Its oceanic climate attracts vacationers from other parts of Spain in the summer months who enjoy the cooler weather. Galicia, originally settled by Celts, has its own unique language and its economy depends heavily on fishing. Santiago de Compostela, the capital of Galicia and the third holiest city in Christendom, is a beautifully preserved medieval cathedral town. The Basque Autonomous Community – another ethnically unique region of Northern Spain – boasts seaside resorts, spectacular mountain vistas, medieval cathedrals, and extraordinary 20th century architecture.
Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.
