Deep within the Ría de Muros y Noia, the compact medieval town of Noia is at the edge of the Barbanza mountain range. The Gothic church of San Martín rises over the old town's Praza do Tapal, facing resolutely out to sea. La Alameda is a lovely park in the town center that gives way to a tiled pedestrian street lined with palm trees and wrought-iron-and-stone benches. You can catch glimpses of the ría through the trees; in the summer, the street fills with terrace cafés. Nearby are the beaches of Testal and Boa.
