Turismo de Vigo

Christmas is the time of the year when family and friends come together to share and enjoy the very best of our gastronomy. And if there is one thing we know how to do in Galicia it is to eat well!!

Within such a rich tradition of  cocina gallega, the exceptional port of Vigo provides excellent productos del mar to fish markets and traders.

You can take the culinary art of Vigo home to your table, by experiencing the local farmers markets and hatcheries in the city, where you can buy fresh shellfish to prepare your very own special Christmas menu. You only live once! There is even the choice of frozen shellfish, with unbeatably low prices offered by our prestigious frozen fishing industry. If you are short on time, no need to worry as shell fish companies and traders can deliver your ready-prepared purchases to your home.

Still unsure what exactly to cook for the holiday season this year? Perhaps you might take some inspiration from our recipe book which explains how to make a delicious empanada de zamburiñas (scallop pie), a tapa of pulpo “ á feira” (octopus served with olive oil, paprika and rock salt) or a wonderful dish of Galician. Oh, and you can also check the seafood cooking time.

Be sure to open a bottle of the wonderful white wine Albariño D.O. Rías Baixas or a Ribeiro to wash down these incredible delicacies. It is the absolutely perfect blend!

¡Buen apetito!
