Fiesta de la Arribada Baiona
A few minutes from Mougás, there is Baiona, a fishing village with a lot of history. And that is why this municipality of Pontevedra celebrates the Fiesta de la Arribada on March 1 the 525th anniversary of the arrival of the caravel "La Pinta" to Baiona with the scoop of the Discovery of America. The festivities, which include reconstructions of battles on horseback, a medieval market and numerous demonstrations of traditional crafts. A perfect plan to enjoy with the family from March 2 to 4.
Father's Day is in itself a wonderful day to celebrate anywhere, but if we have to recommend a special place to enjoy it, we stay with Oia and its surroundings. Visit this wonderful region and its natural landscapes on March 19 and, if you feel adventurous, do it with an outdoor camping trip. In this area of the Galician Rias Baixas you can visit beautiful viewpoints such as A Pedreira, A Cabeciña or Roques de Baiona.
Galicia is a community with a lot of religious tradition, and it is something that is noticeable when Easter comes. From March 25 to April 1, all the parishes take their saints into religious marches, accompanied by devout parishioners throughout the village, town or city. In addition, it is customary to accompany a band and throw festive bombs. In the fishing villages, you even get to see processions of boats. If you want to witness this celebration, we recommend you to visit Baiona, Nigrán, Oia, Mougás or La Guardia.
As you can see, March is only a boring month if you allow it to be. Come to Oia and enjoy all the cultural, gastronomic and historical offer we offer you, one step away from our Camping Mougás. Enjoy it!
