Nigrán Things to Do
Fun in the Sun
People come to Nigran for its fabulous beaches such as Playa de Panxon, Playa de Patos, and Playa America to name a few. My favorite is Playa de Panxon. I just love the scenery and the brick walkway that takes you from one end of the beach to the other. Also you will find quite a number of really good restaruants and cafes serving some of the best seafood around.Related to:
Panaderia Copena Camos: The Best Panaderia Around
When you're in Spain, you'll find that bread is one of your staple foods. If you happen to be in Nigran, this panaderia is the best. We ate bread everywhere we went in Galica and this place had the most wonderful breads and pastries by far.
Their standard baguette was just perfect. They always seem to have one warm and ready for us to take back with us. What really makes them stand out from the others is their sweet bread which is called Trensada or Rosca in Spain. They would sell out of it as soon as it came out of the oven. I'm not even going to mention how many loaves we ate...
Copena Camos is located on the main street in Nigran. There have numerous tables where you can sit and enjoy your pastry and some cafe con leche. The main area is small with only two tables and a little sitting area at the coffee bar but there is a second floor where you can also sit.
The owner, Irene, is really nice. She lives on the top floor of the building with her two Yorkies and cat.
Nigrán Off The Beaten Path
Bridge at A Ramallosa
The medival bridge of A Ramallosa on the Minor River separates the municipalities of Nigran and Baiona. The bridge may have been of Roman origin but was totally reconstructed around the 12th century by San Pedro Telmo, Bishop of Tui.
The bridge has a total of fourteen arcs, ten with average points and four that are more rounded. In the middle of the bridge there is a "cruceiro" with the image of San Telmo.Related to:
