Fireplaces in the kitchens, cosy lounges, fully equipped kitchens and some of them with the traditional “cocina económica”, a very old cooker and stove that was powered by lighting the wood, and the marble countertop around it, as a table where families used to gather every day.

A sweet treat is always welcome so you must have a piece of the incredible tarta de Santiago or Pedras de Santiago. You will never have enough!Galicia for beach lovers

One place you have to see before leaving Galicia is Combarro. This small fishing village is a small resort by the sea with granite-paved streets, traditional houses perched by the small cliffs, independent shops selling all sorts of Galician souvenirs and the emblematic “cruceiros” and “hórreos”. The cruceiros are these monumental granite crosses and you will see eight of them here. The hórreos are the traditional elevated corn houses, also made of granite in Combarro, used for drying the corn or the fish. In the rest of the country, you will see wooden hórreos rather than granite ones, as they don’t have to be preserved as much as the ones by the sea. Enjoy a day in this picture-perfect village.
