Reaching the hamlet, while you descend the steep slope in search of the church, on both sides of the road you will find the traditional stalls selling roscas (cookie rings), images, medals and other symbols among which the “sanandreses” and the sprigs of “herba de namorar” (lover's grass) stand out. The “sanandreses” are the most typical souvenir that you can take with you from Teixido. They are figures made from baked bread dough, painted in lively colours that represent different motifs related to the saint, such as his boat, or the sardine that he ate during his journey, and that, according to the sellers, protect the place where they are kept. With regards to the “herba de namorar”, also known as sea thrift, it is considered to have magic powers in matters related to love. It is common for young or single pilgrims to collect it where the nitre salt gathers, to solve their amorous problems, or to get help in finding a partner.
