Description

A picturesque, seafaring town that was portrayed to perfection by Castelao, its most illustrious resident. The towns close connections with Mexico and passion of the seamen have turned the Virgin de Guadalupe into an object of true devotion. This dearly beloved image is carried out on a maritime procession by the sailors who show it off to the rest of the town. At midnight, the bands and local people sing a popular song in the candlelight that says "descalciña pola area parece unha rianxeira". This festival is held around 8th September.
