Ten unique routes
“Terras de Miranda – Tourism of Lugo” is a cultural, social and economic common space made up by 14 town councils that form the Rural Development Group (RDG) Terras de Miranda that is financed with European funds.
This is a magical territory located in the district of A Mariña (Lugo, Galicia), between the Cantabrian Sea and the mountain range of O Xistral. Here you can discover the beauty of the landscape and of our people through unique locally grown food that inspires a gastronomy with its own personality.
Route 1. 2-3 days
Travel inland from the coast to visit old flour mills and see how the craftsmanship of bread, ‘empanadas’ (Galician pies) or the “enfariñada” still continue to delight the palate today.
Delicacies from the land
Route 2. 2 days
What is the route that the best beans, apples and tomatoes follow before reaching the table? Learn how our kitchen garden is harvested and how sustainable production takes our products to professional kitchens all over Spain.
Extract from the sea
Route 3. 5 days
Travel the A Mariña coast of Lugo going from port to port and savouring our most representative seafood and shellfish such as sea urchins, rock octopus or “chícaros” (cockles).
Route 4. 2-3 days
Discover our main ports and auction centres facing the Cantabrian sea, to get to know the seafaring culture and trade. Without them there would be no fish with their own name like the line-caught hake of Celeiro or northern albacore from Burela.
Route 5. 4 days
This is a route for the sweet toothed! There is no shortage of stops to taste the famous cake of Mondoñedo, traditional after dinner desserts or almost lost recipes like the Colineta, picked up by the writer Cunqueiro.
Passion for horses
Route 6. 3 days
If anything characterises the Terras de Miranda it is their farming spirit and, above all, the century-old horse fairs like those of As San Lucas, As Quendas or As Maulas, which you can still attend.
Route 7. 5 days
Mountains, forests, and “fragas” have always been a source of food. Collect mushrooms, chestnuts or prepare honey next to the O Xistral mountain range and at the same time get know why it is so important to preserve these ecosystems.
Route 8. 4 days
Feel the expression ‘Galicia, the land of a thousand rivers’ first hand during idyllic fishing in spring or in autumn, go to one of the many hunting grounds of the Terras de Miranda.
Unesco heritage site
Route 9. 4 days
This is a historical pilgrimage route to Santiago. Both the variant of Ribadeo as well as that of Trabada will lead the way to explore the territory and our most typical gastronomy.
Food that is culture
Route 10. 2 days
Taste a menu (starter, 2 dishes and dessert) inspired by the work of Álvaro Cunqueiro (20th century). Dishes that the great writer from Mondoñedo tasted a thousand times and recommended with passion.
