A forum to promote cohabitation

Pontevedra is no longer a space inundated with cars. Today, it is an environmentally friendly city that has become an international referent in terms of urban quality and sustainability. Its streets and squares are dynamic, comfortable and welcoming spaces to meet, celebrate urban life and develop economic activities.


Pontevedra is a universally accessible city at the service of its residents and visitors. By giving open public spaces back to the people and withdrawing cars completely from the Historic Center and most pedestrian areas in the inner ring, a plurality of uses aimed at promoting diversity and equality has been made possible.


The gradual transformation of the urban environment has boosted the city’s service economy and created new opportunities for leisure and creativity, which, in turn, has led to a remarkable revitalization of commerce and management.
