Description

The banks of the River Arnoia at the point where it joins the Miño is a paradise of wine, fruit trees, peppers and hot springs that have given rise to a spa that looks down upon a calm and navigable stretch of the River Miño. The summer heat is more keenly felt in this middle section of the Miño, in a region watched over by the mythical mountain of Coto de Novelle. Not to be missed is a visit to one of the typical taverns, with their tables set out under the vines, to sample the eels and trout accompanied by those fried peppers that fill the air with a mouth-watering aroma. The fine wines of the region, which have earned the skilful harvesters their well-deserved reputation, are the perfect accompaniment. The Pepper Festival is held during the first weekend in August, in recognition and tribute to the natural wealth of the land, and includes the finest traditions Galicia has to offer in an incomparable setting.
