Fishing has a great relevance in A Guarda, being an important part of its economy. Through its streets we can soak up the seafaring atmosphere, with its colourful houses, monuments dedicated to this profession or seeing the boats arrive at its port. The fish market is managed by the Fishermen’s Guild of Santa Tecla, and it is possible to attend the auction, although only professionals can buy. July is the month in which the gastronomy of this town is commemorated, with the Swordfish Festival, which extols the figure of this species that appears on the menus of restaurants as grilled, among other preparation; and the Lobster and Seafood Cuisine Festival, declared of Tourist Interest.
