Discover the gastronomy and the most magical and traditional rituals in Galicia, coming to this evening gastronomic VIP experience through the bustling streets of Santiago.
The guide will be waiting in the square Plaza 8 de Marzo (Porta do Camiño) at 8,30 p.m. You will recognize for the blue umbrella.
From the Porta do Camiño in the square Plaza 8 de Marzo we will depart with a local guide who will take us around the Old Town. The tour is lasting one hour and a half approx. We will see the youthful nightlife of this World Heritage city, while we enter into its history accompanied by a local expert.
After having a tasty dinner with popular foods and beverages, we will attend one of the most prevailing rituals from the Galician culture: La Queimada. This beverage is made from a strong moonshine distilled from wine and grape husks, besides other ingredients like coffee grains, citrus rinds and sugar. Before anything, the mix must be slowly flambeed inside a clay pot, producing amazing blue flames until most of the alcohol consumes. As a result we will end a warm, rather sweet and flavorful liquor. According to the legend, those who may drink this potion after the spell is cast, may be released from evil spirits and get his soul cleaned.
First of all, a guided tour in group during an hour and a half around the old quarter of Santiago. Also a full meal and finally the traditional show of the Galician Queimada purification ceremony.
The estimated length for this VIP gastronomic experience in Santiago is 4 hours.
Every day at 8,30 p.m.
