    Plaza de Fefi����ns

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this 16th century granite square, also known as Market's Square, stand out both the manor house (Pazo de Figueiroa) and the Church of San Bieito.

    The square initially was home to the local market and was bathed by the sea. Nowadays, it is the central point to enter and visit Cambados. For instance, the touristy train departs from this square and it leads visitors through a 45 minute trip through the village.

    Pazo de Figueiroa

    Pazo de Figueiroa is a beautiful granite manor house, dated from the 16th century and built in Baroque style. After refurbishment, it now houses a cellar, which is opened for visits.

    The Church of San Bieito was built in early 17th century on top of the ruins of another church, being that its towers were later added in the 18th century.

    San Sadurni��o tower

    This tower is the remain of a defensive castle. Some centuries back, Galicia was the target of northern people conquests and pirates who made several invests to dominate these lands. The 10th century tower itself, apart from defensive purposes, acted as a lighthouse for those navigating these waters.

    I've read that there was a very interesting system working here: to prevent these attacks, the fortress in Lanzada made an alert, then it was time for this Cambados' fortress to make the alert to the fortress in Vilanova de Arousa and then on to Catoira ending in Santiago de Compostela; all these alerts were made by lighting a fire and their main goal was to defend Santiago de Compostela.

    Street in Cambados

    Favorite thing: Cambados is a nice coastal village, with beautiful granite houses - it holds the title of "Muy Noble Villa" (Very Noble Village). It is known as the capital of the Albariño wine region, with a Museum dedicated to the wine. While strolling the cobbled streets you will come across a lot of shops selling varied types of wine. Also, a lot of offer concerning restaurants (and seafood).

    Main must sees of the village are:
    - Main square: Plaza de Fefiñáns
    - Ruins of Santa Mariña
    - San Sadurniño Tower
    - Wine Museum
