The origin of the name "Ponteceso" can be found in the River Anllóns which flows into this estuary and which was called "Zeso" up until the Middle Ages. Ponteceso is the municipal capital of the locality and it and Corme are the largest towns in the territory. It's also the starting point for the two routes included in the tourism-boosting initiative called "Ponteceso. Os Camiños do Mar": the Camiño da Ribeira Route and the Pondalian Route. The former is recognised by the Federación Galega de Montañismo (Galician Mountaineering Federation) with the name PR-G 148; it connects the municipal capital with Corme along the coast. The second route is a tribute to the poet Eduardo Pondal and visits several places he mentions in his work.

Ponteceso coastline

In the fewer than 20 miles of coastline separating Ponteceso from the tip of Cape Roncudo, you'll find a perfect synthesis of some of the most interesting ecosystems on Europe's Atlantic coast. 

This small stretch of coastline – which boasts an exceptional level of conservation – will introduce you to original habitats and landscapes that offer lessons in ecology, geomorphology, zoology and botany, not to mention lessons in how human beings have made use of these places, revealing the character of the local culture and economic relations. 

The sustainability of the ways in which this section of coastline is used is a condition without which it would be impossible to understand how it has been and is being used, even centuries before the term "sustainability" was coined.
