Galician-style is the centrepoint of this geodestination's cuisine. Lalín does not waste this opportunity and its Feira do Cocido (National Tourist Festival) reappears every year with the carnival.
The Festa do Gaiteiro de Soutelo (Soutelo Piper´s Festival), in Forcarei, is also very popular and has been declared a Galician Tourist Festival. Not far away, in Vila de Cruces, the Festa do Galo de Curral is considered a Galician Tourist Event, while in A Estrada, another important date declared to be an International Tourist Event has become a centre of attraction: the Rapa das Bestas de Sabucedo, the ancient struggle between men and wild horses.
In August, it's the village of Bandeira that attracts attention with its Festa da Empanada which has been taking place since 1974. Pork shoulder is honoured as it should be in Silleda. Honey and different cheeses round out the gastronomic map, the first in Codeseda and the second in Vinseiro and Callobre.
