Galicia and Asturias Travel Guide

Padron

Padrón grew up beside the Roman port of Iria Flavia and is where the body of St. James is believed to have washed ashore after its miraculous maritime journey. The town is known for its pimientos de Padrón, tiny green peppers fried and sprinkled with sea salt. The fun in eating these is that about one in five is very spicy. Galicia's biggest food market is held here every Sunday.
