Cambados is a municipality in Galicia, Spain in the province of Pontevedra. It is known for its famous white wine, Albariño.CultureFishing is a major industry in this coastal area of Galicia . In Cambados, fish and seafood sellers sell at what is called La Plaza, which is a large and hallow installation that is very busy every morning, as fish is usually part of the daily diet. La ría de Arousa, the body of water that surrounds this area, is rich in many types of seafood, as well.In Cambados, seafood is mostly collected in "O Serrido" or "A Seca", which is an area of water surrounding the San Tome Tower emptying out almost completely when the tide is low, leaving the perfect area for seafood collectors. Large groups of them, go when the tide is low with their buckets and tools to dig up the sand and collect seafood . The culture in Cambados, as well as most coastal villages of Galicia, very much revolves around seafood. It is always eaten at Christmastime, on holidays, and at weddings. Every Saturday and Wednesday morning there is a market along the maritime walk, selling generally cheap clothing, accessories, shoes, perfumes, and household items. It is very popular because of its prices and walking through the market the sellers yell out prices and persuasions.Most holidays call for fiestas, in which there are performances and rides, usually occurring during summertime. The largest and most famous of these fiestas is the Festa do Albariño, that usually lasts about a week towards the end of July or beginning of August. Tents are set up along the Calzada selling high quality Albariño wine and seafood, and most people walk around with a wine glass hanging with a thread from their neck. Performances during the Albariño are usually special: whilst other fiesta performances consist of unknown orchestras, the Albariño usually brings about more famous performers. For example, Alejandro Sanz has performed during these fiestas.When using our Spain trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
