Santiago de Compostela: Gastronomy

To speak about the cuisine of Santiago is not possible without taking into consideration the cuisine of the entire region of Galicia, which has an outstanding reputation in all Spain. Most typical is fish, which exists here in extraordinary quality.

The Saint Jacob's Shell, Viera, is not only the symbol of the town, but also a first rate speciality. The same has to be said about Pulpo á la Gallega, octopus prepared with paprika. Another well-known dish is Empanada Gallega, a pie of fish, meat or vegetables.

Among sweets Tarta Compostelana, a tart of almonds, is most famous.

The wines of the region have a great reputation too, specially Ribeiro, young and fresh, but don't leave out the chance to try as well Fefiñanes, Betanzos, Rosal, Valdeorras, Ulla and Amandi.
