lives Ribadavia, enjoys Ribadavia "
historic town of Ribadavia, originally named Floravia by the famous
Galician poet Otero Pedrayo, has been central to both Spanish and
Galician history; first for wine production before emerging as an
important commercial centre over the centuries. Its old quarter
has been recognised by the Spanish government as an area of cultural
interest and with its churches of the Romantic, Gothic and Baroque
periods, its convents of St Dominic and St Francis, the old bridge
the River Avia and its picturesque town square, everything in
Ribadavia is artistic. The town enjoys many festivals and cultural
activities, such as famous Galician Festival of the Wine of Ribeiro,
Festival of History and the Mostra International Festival of Theatre.
Equally important is the is the week of festivities in honour
of ´The Virgin of Portal´, the town´s patron
saint. Later in your visit it is recommended that you taste the
special wines of the Denomination of the Origin of Ribeiro, together
with the celebrated ´rosquillas’; delicious cakes
based on what was originally a Jewish recipe.
