Muros

Muros is a popular summer resort with lovely, arcaded streets framed by Gothic arches. The quiet back alleys of the old town reveal some well-preserved Galician granite houses, but the real action takes place when fishing boats return to dock from the mussel-breeding platforms that dot the bay. At around 6 pm, a siren signals the start of the lonja (fish auction), to which anyone is welcome, although you need a special license to buy. Trays spilling over with slimy octopi or cod line the floor, covered in a sheen of saltwater, squid ink, and fish blood; the favored footwear is knee-high rubber boots. Good beaches nearby include Praia de San Francisco and Praia de Area.
