The Ría de Arousa geodestination hosts an International Tourist Festival – the Romaría Vikinga de Catoira – which recalls the adventures of the dreaded Northmen in mediaeval times until Archbishop Gelmírez – the man who put Santiago on the map of Christendom – stopped them.

Then come the National Tourist Festivals, which means Viño Albariño (Cambados) and the patron saint festivals of San Roque da Vila (Vilagarcía de Arosa). Lastly are the Galician Tourist Festivals, and these include those of Exaltación do Marisco (O Grove), Xesús O Nazareno e Procesión das Mortallas (A Pobra del Caramiñal), Virxe de Guadalupe (Rianxo), Dorna (Ribeira) and the Romaría de San Ramón de Bealo (Boiro), and the Semana Santa de Paradela in Meis.
With all this in sight, it is not very difficult to guess what the cuisine of the Ría de Arousa is like: it is based on what is given by the sea, and firstly the various shellfish, whose extraction is the main source of wealth of the people who live in this geodestination.
