Vigo’s fishing town
Bouzas is the essence of seafaring Vigo. It was an independent region until 1904, which is why its people still say "I’m going to Vigo". Nonetheless, this is something they do as little as possible, since Bouzas has everything they could ever need. We would like to highlight its traditional commerce, its bustling food market, and the weekly street market set up in the Alameda every Sunday morning. It has an urban beach, as well as a lovely promenade that is almost 2 miles long. If you feel like having a little something to eat, Bouzas offers some of the best options for tapas in Vigo: from trendy spots with elaborate tapas (always made with local produce) to the most typical, serving traditional and authentic Galician cuisine.
Bouzas boasts a lovely parish church, built on a rock in the 16th century and rebuilt a hundred years later. There is also a beautiful cruceiro, probably marking the town’s birthplace.
Don’t miss out on the Cocina Marinera (Seafood cooking) Festivities in July.
