Galicians love their parades and fireworks, so it's no surprise they have celebrations during the summer that incorporate these festivities along with live music and dance. The Os Peliqueiros Carnival is held in the nearby town of Laza in around February and March each year. Locals dress up as Os Peliqueiros (ornamentally outfitted “kings”) and battle each other with flour and live ants. Festas de San Xoán commemorates the birth of John the Baptist on the night of the 23rd of June each year. Galicians light bonfires on the beaches and set fire to an alcoholic drink called queimada, which is meant to keep witches away. On the 24th and 25th of July each year, the Fiesta de Santiago Apóstol celebrates James, the patron saint of Galicia. Aside from cultural events, dancing and singing, there are huge fireworks displays on the 24th of July, while the 25th is known as Galicia Day. You can join in all the fun by booking a flight to Galicia from London. There are direct flights that take a couple of hours to Santiago de Compostela from London airports such as Stansted and Gatwick.
Seafood lovers will rejoice in Galicia. This coastal Spanish community is blessed with the freshest and best quality fish and other sea creatures like mussels and clams, which are cooked to perfection in the local restaurants. Even a simple dish like pulpo a la Feira is amazing; it's melt-in-the-mouth boiled octopus and tentacles with smoked paprika and olive oil, served with potatoes. You can find it at markets and tapas bars, or try Restaurante San Jaime in Calle Raiña. In winter, you should definitely taste some Caldo Gallego, a broth traditionally eaten by farmers; it's full of hearty vegetables, beans, pork lard and other local ingredients. You can feast on this at Los Caracoles in Santiago de Compostela. Galicia is proud of its beef: there's a special breed of cows called Galician blonde, and the best way to savour this meat is grilled. Bodega El Capricho is a specialist in this meat and is worth the drive to Jiménez de Jamuz just outside Galicia. And if you're in the mood for something sweet, you can't miss tarta de Santiago, Galicia's most famous dessert cake made with ground almonds and occasionally a bit of brandy, and usually topped with a cross of Saint James. Have a bite at Pastelería Mercedes Mora in nearby Santiago de Compostela.
