International Galician brands such as Adolfo Domínguez, Roberto Verino, Antonio Pernas, Purificación García, Zara... all only a few metres from each other.

Artisanal leather and traditional costumes for daily use.
Cakes and pastries made in enclosed convents, Galician wines, the only European eau-de-vie with its own Designation of Origin, cheeses, canned seafood, algae, sea-urchin caviar, cold meats, chestnuts, almond cakes, chocolate...
