SURFCAMP NORTH SPAIN

HISTORY GALICIA

The denomination comes from the ancient name Gallecia. With this name the Romans identified the county of the Roman Empire that embraced the third of the Iberian Peninsula located to the north of the Duero River and to the west of the Pisuerga. River
The native of Galicia were very well-known for the strong resistance against the Roman Empire. The defense stayed in front of the canyon during more than one century.

Feudal Galicia SURFCAMP SPAIN

The Arab presence in the rest of Spain with the consolidation of an emirate in Galicia doesn’t interrupt the path undertaken toward an elegant typically western society that stays independent of the Muslim power and it struggles violently, during the VIII century against the expansionism of the first Asturias commanders (Fruela, Silo...) just as they relate it the Asturian own chronicles.SURF GALICIA, SURFCAMP GALICIA

Modern Age

The political stability and the loss of the nobility government gave place to the prosperity of the Hidalgos that live in the pazos , the collection of taxes from the peasants, to the ruling of monasteries that are integrated in a rural economy and due to a demographic expansion by the introduction of the corn and the potato.

Galicia until the present time

From that moment, the history of Galicia runs parallel to the Spain. The following centuries were marked by an estrangement of the central power and a progressive discredit of the language and Galician cultures exalted by the own king Alfonso X. The emigration to America and Europe by the middle of the XX century only responded to the conditions of a industrialized region in the surrounded Vigo and with La Coruña like commercial center.
