Visit Combarro, Spain

Combarro is renowned for its horreos of which there are many all along its waterfront. Horreos are grain stores that are raised up on stone pillars. They are found throughout Galicia but Combarro is remarkable both for the number of horreos here - there are about thirty - and for their coastal location. All lined up along the seafront they really are very quirky and attractive.

Behind these are the simple fishermens cottages with Baroque balconies on top of stone pillars.These are usually filled with flowers in the summer.

All in all Combarro is a small simple village but with a charm and uniqueness that make it well worth a visit.

Just a couple of kilometres from Combarro is the 17th century Monasterio de Poio. This has a Baroque facade and a cloister. There is also a mosaique depicting the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Next to the monastery is the largest horreo in Galicia.
