We want to show you the warmth of Galician people across the table. No matter what we celebrate, there will always be food and of course our precious wine!
Our grandmas were already aware that emotions were located in our stomachs, so they always had a hot saucepan ready for guests at home.
Recently scientific studies have proven that the hormone serotonin, responsible for balancing our emotions is produced in 90 % in the stomach. This is why we have created Joy, an experience to discover Galicia most purely, joining us to find one of the best gastronomies in the World.

Stroll through to Belvis Park, the first municipal gardens allowed to be used by the neighborhood. You can find them behind Virxe da Cerca and San Pedro. Every Tuesday morning the park holds an eco-friendly market with green and artisan products. Get to the highest area to find a viewpoint with a panoramic view of the southern region of the modern city and historical rooftops.
The park is a 50 minutes stroll from the city center the other Cathedral of the city. “The City of Culture” or “Gaiás” complex represents an avant-garde architectural icon. A set of large buildings that evoke the Scallop Shell of Pilgrims, as the architect Peter Eisenman first desire. The city includes libraries, cafes, museums, companies, and entrepreneurs sharing a space that seems to be built to develop creativity.
We suggest a visit to the roofs of the Old Cathedral. The best balcony in town is located 30 meters above the Obradoiro in roofs made of stones; thus you will understand the Basilica construction over the centuries.
