Concello de Catoira

City Council of Catoira. CATOIRA was one of the towns visited by the Vikings during the early Middle Ages. In 1960, a group of intellectuals launched the Romería Vikinga, a festival that recalls the Viking raids in Galicia and the defensive role played by Catoira, town twinned with Frederikssund since 1997.

Destination Viking Association has already involved partners both in the Scandinavian 'home lands' of the Vikings in the Nordic countries as well as in a number of the lands in the west where Scandinavians settled (the Isle of Man, Orkney and Shetland, Faeroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland) and some of the Baltic Sea areas with strong Scandinavian impact during the Viking Age (Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Russia). The partnership is open to new partners and new countries.
