Granero del Burro is a bit different in October. Historically, October is a month of good weather so you can take advantage of this to do lots of things without the Summer crowds. You can also use the outside area of the barn in a different way. You can light the bread oven (wood supplied) and have a glass of wine or a beer whilst being toasty warm. There is also a patio heater. Inside the barn there is under floor heating upstairs and downstairs as well as a wood burning stove. We will even do you a 'Queimada' with... Continue reading

Dentro del Granero hay un suelo radiante y una chiminea si baja un pocito las temperaturas. Si quieres, hacemos una 'Queimada' para ti con el conjuro en gallego, castellano o inglés!!

If you are staying at Granero del Burro and want an easy, but interesting walk, then this is the perfect answer. You can make it as long or short as you want but the full distance between San Tirso de Abres and A Pontenova is 12 kilometres (so 24km there and back). It follows the route of the old railway line that opened in 1905. It used to take the iron ore from the mines near A Pontenova to be loaded on to the boats in Ribadeo. You can still see the 'cargadero' in Ribadeo. The walk follows the course... Continue reading

On Sunday 6th May, a new fiesta took place in Trabada. It was designed to celebrate a local speciality called 'enfariñada'. Enfariñada is a pancake like mixture of eggs, flour, salt and water which is poured into hot oil in a frying pan. As it starts to set, it is then chopped up into tiny pieces so that it can be eaten in a bowl with either bacon (savoury) or with honey (sweet). The ladies of the village lined up behind their cooking stoves and prepared the enfariñada from midday onwards. It was a beautiful day and as the people... Continue reading

Ribadeo Indiano es una gran fiesta de Ribadeo que celebra su cuarta edición. Se hace en la segunda semana de julio y merece la pena planear tus vacaciones en función de esta fiesta. Todo el mundo se viste con trajes de la América Latina en la época de la emigración. Es como si estuvieras en el centro de Havana por la noche de sábado. La fiesta homenajea a los emigrantes Gallegos que dejaron Galicia alrededor de 1850 para buscar fortuna en las Américas. La mayoría fueron a Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay, Puerto Rico y Mexico. Cuando volvieron con su fortuna, construyeron... Continue reading

Eu son Eo es un nuevo festival en Ria de Abres y 2017 fue el segundo año.
