Combarro is a village in Galicia.

Get in[edit]

Bus from Pontevedra signed for O Grove. It is not at all clear where to alight and you should ask before you get too far!

Get around[edit]

Walk; it's a very small village.


Horreos for the storage of grain
  • All the shoreline of the village, which is on the north side of the Ria de Pontevedra.
  • The numerous horreos. These look a bit like tombs on legs but are actually for storage. The legs are to deter rats and the crosses on the top are to exclude evil spirits. On local postcards these are shown with translations of 'horreos', the English one reading 'Lurking places!'



If you walk by the horreos you will find many picturesque shops. You shouldn't leave with one of the small witches, because in Galicia witches are said to be everywhere. And you can pick up bottles of wine Albariño, very similar to the italian Pinot Grigio, but better. And lastly, the liquor that is only produced in Galicia and the locals call "Aguardiente", which is distilled from the skin of the grape and sometimes can reach 40 proof.




  • 1 Casa do Sal (Salt House), Rúa do Mar, +34 600-510-309, . This old salt warehouse, now renovated and rehabilitated, has the capacity to accommodate up to a maximum of 3 people. 100€.
