Rianxo is located at the end of the Sierra del Barbanza, on the border between A Coruña and the province of Pontevedra. Birthplace of great writers such as Castelao or Rafael Dieste, this municipality seduces its visitors with walks through its old town and the small port. The festivities for Saint James, around 25 July, welcome the exaltation of one of the most typical fish of the area, the ‘xouba’ (pilchard). Shellfish products include cockles and clams, which are harvested both on land and from boats and are mainly destined for the local canning industry.
