Rianxo, just over the water from Vilarello
The fishing port of Rianxo just over the water has nice coastal walks and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and nearby Padrón, where St James’ bones miraculously came ashore en-route to Santiago, is famous for its sometimes-hot-sometimes-not green peppers – watch out!
Within just half an hour’s drive you can visit Santiago, Pontevedra and Cambados, centre of the Albariño wine region. Closer to home Monte Beiro and Xesteiras offer nice gentle walks and there is a small nature reserve at the abandoned quarry Mina Mercé just down the road.
