Description

This town has one of the various ports scattered along the so-called "Arco Ártabro" (the Artabrian Axis) that stretches from the city of A Coruña as far as Ferrol, including the bay formed by the Betanzos inlet and which flows into the Atlantic at a point known as the Rock of A Marola. Every 16 August the area around the beach -presided over by the exceptional glazed modernist building known as "A Terraza"- becomes a temporary fairground offering a full range of amusements and attractions that draws the crowds from many miles around. Particularly popular is the huge sardiñada (sardine feast), celebrated in true Galician festive tradition.
