Ribadeo is a town on the border of the Principality of Asturias and belongs to the province of Lugo, a border between these two sister cultures. It is situated on the Cantabrian Sea, which provides beautiful landscapes, and boasts with pleasure of its ria of Ribadeo, its gastronomic culture and its particular charm.
It is a versatile place where many come to surf, others to taste the traditional Galician dishes and many others to enjoy the natural landscapes that the coastal town has to offer. A visit to this village provides endless possibilities for all tastes.
In ancient times the town was a great neuralgic centre thanks to its port, the main axis of the Cantabrian trade with the Baltic countries. The well-known brandy was then imported exclusively, so it was known as kúmel de Ribadeo. This declined with the competition from other ports such as Gijón in the 19th century. Today it is an excellent place for travellers, a delight for tourists and an ally of pilgrims thanks to its unique environment.
