What To Expect

Do you want to know one of the most emblematic estuaries and islands of Galicia? This estuary was an important way for Norman, Muslim and Saracen pirates to attack Santiago to Compostela by that time, they used Cortegada's island, very close to Arousa's island as a camp base and port of landing before they went back to their homelands. This estuary is important as well for being one of the maritime routes of St James way, called translation.

Apart from stories of pirates, this land is an area of hard workers who live working as fishermen or gathering shellfish, anonymous people who create wealth, culture and intangible heritage. ON this tour, we will understand different traditional arts of fishing and tools they use. How did a Galician use to live 200 years ago? In order to get an unforgettable experience it is necessary to visit a traditional Galician house, a place to feel, understand and know our culture deeper. We assure you that you won't regret it.

We start off, doing a boat trip along the estuary of Arousa in order to get to know first-hand how fishermen and shellfish catchers work and what kind of tools they use. Specialized guides will explain how every tool have been used during the time. After finishing the boat trip we will visit one of the last tide mills well conserved in Galicia.

Last but not least we will visit a traditional house of the late 19th century, early 20th century located in San Vicente del Grove, here, we will discover how Galicians lived during that period and we will have a special lunch.
