Ribeira Sacra

Festivals and gastronomy...

  • Festa das Fachas de Castelo - Taboada

The Ribeira Sacra is also the name of the Denomination of Origin of its famous wines, whose production was begun long ago by the monastic communities that settled on the banks of the rivers. Every year, Soba hosts a festival declared to be a Galician Tourist Event – the Feira do Viño de Amandi. This event extols one of the treasures produced through the joint efforts of man and nature in the Ribeira Sacra. Two other local festivals have also been declared official Galician Tourist Events: the Folión de Carros in Chantada and the Festa das Fachas de Castelo in Taboada. These are examples of traditional local customs passed down from father to son and that come down to us as a tourist attraction as well.

In addition to growing grapes and olives for oil, other traditional occupations are still preserved in the area. Very much appreciated by visitors are the potteries of Gundivós and Niñodaguia, where the work is done with clay obtained locally and fired in artisan kilns that are, today, small relics heavy with identity.
