LOCATION: Redondela

It is not possible to understand the gastronomy of Redondela without cuttlefish, a product par excellence, which we can find prepared in different ways. This mollusc, so typical of the San Simón inlet, is caught by fishermen using traditional methods especially in spring. In the first fortnight of May, the Festa do Choco, declared of Tourist Interest, brings together the main innkeepers of the area in a gastronomic competition. But we must not forget other products such as mussels, whose feast is celebrated in Chapela, which are steamed or put in an ‘empanada.’
