Very close to Santiago: Arzúa

The Arzúa Cheese Festival, declared a Festival of Galician Tourist Interest, is held on the first weekend in March.

Since 1975, every first weekend in March, cheese and culture are the main features in Arzúa. The festival and the town are transformed by a whirlwind of gastronomic, musical, cultural, artisanal, technological, traditional and innovative events.

The star product is Arzúa-Ulloa cheese, which in 1986 was awarded the category of Galician Quality Product and enjoys its own Protected Designation of Origin classification. It shares space in the showground with other Galician products with designation of origin classifications, with homemade cheeses and other cheeses from different parts of Spain and Europe.

The festival’s objective is to combine gastronomy and culture, familiarising children and youth with cheese by means of different activities. One of these is the organization of the Cheese Festival with two days of music for everyone.
