Granero del Burro in October


Granero del Burro is a bit different in October. Historically, October is a month of good weather so you can take advantage of this to do lots of things without the Summer crowds. You can also use the outside area of the barn in a different way. You can light the bread oven (wood supplied) and have a glass of wine or a beer whilst being toasty warm. There is also a patio heater. Inside the barn there is under floor heating upstairs and downstairs as well as a wood burning stove. We will even do you a 'Queimada' with the witches chant in English, Spanish or Galician!!


In October it is the fiesta de San Lucas in Mondoñedo. This year the dates are the 17th until the 21st October. It is a huge fiesta with an big market selling everything you could wish for as well as tents for eating in, lots of music and a special day with a horse and donkey market. This year the main day is the 18th October. This year the groups playing include Panorama, Paris de Noia and Palladium. Have a look here for more information.


At this time of year all the restaurants are open and there is wonderful food, the beaches are deserted, you can  visit the famous Las Catedrales beach and there is great walking. It is worth visiting this corner of Galicia just to relax and unwind.
