Festivals and gastronomy...

When it's Carnival, all of Galicia celebrates but – perhaps – they do so more in the province of Ourense than elsewhere.

Moreover, there are three locations in this province that stand out, and two of them are in this geodestination. One is Verín, and the other is Laza. Both the night-time descent from Monterrei el Xoves de Comadres in the former case, (the women monopolise all the local restaurants) as well as the descent from the Morena in the latter, bring together thousands of people. What's more, in Laza they have the custom of angry ants and flour on people, which everyone accepts by hook or by crook.

With regard to celebrations, we cannot leave out the Feira do Viño de Monterrei which hasn't got a long tradition – as the designation of origin is relatively young – but which is becoming more established every year and turns Verín into a place to meet.

The Entroido de Verín has been declared a National Tourism Event. The Entroido de Laza is a Galician Tourist Event. Also important in the areas are the Festa do Pemento de Oímbra, along with the Festa da Androlla e do Entroido de Viana do Bolo. All have been declared Galician Tourist Events.

The municipality of Riós, which is rocky and crossed by the Way of St. James, is increasingly known throughout Galicia for a product that was supported by Europe, which backed the creation of a specific route: the humble but increasingly well-regarded chestnut, whose appreciation declined considerably in the collective imaginary of the 20th century, but that has been on the road to recovery for decades. The Festa da Castaña e do Cogomelo and rivers have the declaration of Tourist Interest in Galicia.
