Padrón, Berce do Xacobeo. A town located in the south of A Coruña province, bordering that of Pontevedra, in an extensive plain between the Ulla and Sar rivers. Jacobean tradition identifies it as the mooring place of the apostolic boat, which was guided by an angel to bring the Apostle James’s lifeless body from Palestine to the port of IriaFlavia.
This region full of Jacobean culture was where such outstanding authors as Rosalía de Castro and the Nobel Prize-winner Camilo José Cela lived.
The area’s fertility makes it a gastronomic point of reference thanks to the famous Herbón Peppers, a product with its own Protected Designation of Origin classification.
