Small towns and villages in The Way: Melide

Date: 06/02/2020

Another popular stop in Galicia is the peaceful town of Melide, another place deeply connected to The Way of St. James. In fact, here you will the most ancient "cruzeiro" of them all.

This beautiful town feels like travelling in time thanks to its narrow stoned streets, farmlands, chappels and churches (Saint Roque Chapel, Sancti Spiritus Church, and St Anthony’s Chapel), stone walls and bridges. A place where you can discover amazing buildings and landscapes but also, and amazing cuisine, like the typical plate "pulpo a feira", a boiled octopus with paprika, incredibly delicious.

And of course, do not forget to visit the traditional food market that happens every Sunday where you will find cheese, fruit and veggies. Ather festivals and celebrations happen all along the year, so we are sure you will find something to captivate your soul in Melide no matter when you are visiting.
