Real Food Adventure - Galicia SummaryAdd to Shortlist
The finish point for pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago, Santiago de Compostela is home to the cathedral where St James, one of the 12 Apostles, is purportedly buried.
A beautiful village on the Arnoia River, Allariz's town centre is full of cobbled streets, traditional houses and restaurants, cafes and produce stores serving up delicious local specialties.
Galicia is famous for the wide variety of cheeses it produces – from cows, sheep and goats; cured, semi-cured and smoked – and they match perfectly with local wines.
Located at the centre of a biosphere reserve, the hills and valleys surrounding Allariz are home to a wide variety of traditional food producers who still use centuries-old production techniques.
First populated during Neolithic times, Allariz's historic centre remains today with its impressive churches, old city walls and Romanesque bridge.
