The Federación Española de Clubes Campistas, to the sponsors who are supporting this F.I.C.C.

On behalf of the FEDERACIÓN ESPAÑOLA DE CLUBES CAMPISTAS, I invite you to participate in this 90th FICC Rally and wish you a cheerful stay.
The celebration of the 90th FICC Rally 2021 in the Council of A Guarda is excellent news for the town and for the entire Province of Pontevedra for various reasons.
The election of the FICC demonstrates the muscle and quality of services and facilities that campers enjoy in this territory.
The Rias Bajas (a part of the coastal area of Galicia) are a paradise for the beauty of its coasts, its interior, its islands and people who do camping fall in love with the Province when they discover it.
People who come to the International Rally in 2021 will be able to get an idea of this territory with a simple view from Mount Santa Tecla between the millenary walls of the Galician Neolithic Fortified Settlement.
During your stay you will taste the exquisite products of the sea, the land and its vines. Landscapes, Gastronomy, Culture, Heritage, fishing villages and two of the routes of the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James).
We want to show the world our Rías Bajas and this International FICC Rally will be a great showcase to project this unique land.
Welcome to the 90th FICC Rally 2021
Welcome to the 90th FICC Rally 2021
It is an honor to be able to address you on the occasion of the 90th International FICC Rally. It is a great milestone for the tourism department
of A Guarda city that the Rally takes place in our town and a pleasure for us to collaborate in such a unique event.
I am sure your choice for the organization of the Rally is not accidental. It
is influenced, among other things, by the fact that we have a campsite in one of the most beautiful natural environments in Galicia, right at the mouth of the Miño river. A space that belongs to the Natura 2000 network
and that is classified as a Special Bird Protection Zone due to its ornithological wealth.
We boast of being a welcoming town and we want you to feel at home.
Here you can find nature, culture and heritage. A unique example of our nature is the very mouth of the Miño river, where the campsite is located,
in a wetland of great environmental wealth. Moving downstream, you can enjoy O Muíño river beach integrated in a pine forest and a path which runs along the Atlantic coast to the fishing port and the small maritime cove of a journey to enjoy walking.
If what interests you is culture and heritage, you can visit our assets of cultural interest, the Castle of Santa Cruz, in the heart of the city and the Galician Neolithic fortified settlements of Mount Santa Trega, the largest in the northwest of Spain. In the mountains you will have the opportunity to enjoy our spectacular landscapes in one of the most important tourist attractions in Galicia.
To complete your stay with us, I also recommend a visit to the port and the town center.
In addition to the points of interest such as the old wall, the Spanish emigrant houses, the maritime façade or the historic center, our shops and restaurants, our people preserve that flavour of a fishing village in which the rhythm, the leisurely and familiar aroma of the towns can still be appreciated.
Enjoy your stay with us, if you let yourself be carried away, this magical atmosphere that enchanted Neolithic Fortified Settlements and Romans will also leave an indelible mark on you.
We invite you to enjoy A Guarda.
