Pazos de Arenteiro and the Festa do Polbo

Pazos de Arenteiro and the Festa do Polbo

The picturesque village of Pazos de Arenteiro in the heart of O Ribeiro is a magnificent example of popular and palace architecture...


Cuisine: "Gastronomía de Galicia"

In Galicia you might miss some things, but you cannot miss its cuisine...

O Ribeiro

Festivals and gastronomy...

This geodestination is chock-full of festivities. Just like all of Galicia, it goes without saying, but here there are several heavy weights.

Thus, Ribadavia features the Exposición e Exaltación do Viño do Ribeiro, O Carballiño hosts the highly popular Festa do Polbo, A Arnoia draws people like a magnet to its Festa do Pemento and in San Cristovo de Cea there is no room to take a step during the Festa de Exaltación do Pan de Cea (indeed, all the ovens have permanent signs). The Festa da Istoria – also in Ribadavia and declared a National Tourism Event – revives the Jewish world, with bands, a parade, human chess and wedding included. And with regard to the world of culture, we must return to Ribadavia, where the Mostra Internacional de Teatro is held every year.
It is not easy to find someone unfamiliar with the place name that identifies this geodestination, which is undoubtedly due to its Ribeiro wine and Designation of Origin, which has enjoyed an excellent reputation for over four centuries. Here, it is the River Avia around which part of the territory is organised, surrounded by rugged mountains. Adjacent to Avia and in the foothills of the mountains that define it are where most of the vineyards are.
