On Saturday 25th april 2020 maybe you’re competing or watching your competitors do their stuff… Or maybe not.
In case you want, you can go to the traditional market, which is celebrated every Saturday on the village and it’s open air. You can see and buy – if you want to – some traditional products. You’ll be able also to taste a traditional dish, “callos”, served in many places around Vegadeo.
In the afternoon, you can take a walk on the Banks of the river Suarón and visit the town of Piantón, which is 2 kilometers away. In that town, you’ll be able to see an old Roman Bridge and visit the square of boulders, where you’ll see a lot of traditional buildings like San Esteban’s church, that preserves many ancient carvings made by local santeiros. When you finish your visit, you can come back to Vegadeo following the same path you took, and then you can continue to El Caleiro, where you’ll find the entrance to Vegadeo and a lovely walk near the river Eo – which gives the name to the town: Vegad-Eo.
