About the tour

The tour will start with a view from the lighthouse of the fishing port of Cangas do Morrazo on the other side of the bay of the city of Vigo. Enjoy panoramic views of Vigo and of the fishing boats docked at the port of Cangas. Then, take a stroll along the fishing port to get a closer look at the boats and nets to catch the Octopus which is a delicacy in Galicia. Stop at the village market to see the fresh fish, seafood, meats, veggies, etc... ending out front of the Church of Santiago de Cangas. The best way to understand the Galician Culture is through it's fishing culture! Disclaimer: Spain is not a vegetarian country; therefore, this trip may not be suitable if you are vegetarian/vegan or feel sensitive about butchers, poultry, fish etc.
