Chestnut gathering: “The rummaging”
During the months of October and November the chestnut forests or “soutos” are full of gatherers looking for chestnuts. The most common variety in the municipality of Manzaneda is the yellow chestnut, of high quality and highly valued on the market. Besides being one of the largest domestic producers of chestnuts, Manzaneda boasts the largest chestnut tree perimeter in Galicia, located in Rozabales and within walking distance of the route.
The end of the chestnut season is marked by the activity known as “A rebusca” - The rummaging, when the last chestnuts of the year are selected by hand.
