Rianxo is the cradle of notable writers such as Manuel Antonio, Rafael Dieste or one of the most international Galicians: Alfonso Daniel Rodríguez Castelao. It has an old town and a small charming harbour with bars where you can taste delicious tapas. Its municipal area includes beaches such as Tanxil, that offers good services and is surrounded by an excellent promenade, Playa de las Conchas, which offers the possibility of practicing water sports, and other less crowded beaches such as Playa da Aceveira or Tres Cruces, with proper nature conservation status.
The most important festival of Rianxo is the Fiesta de Guadalupe, which takes place between September 8 and 15. The first Sunday after the 8th, the neighbours take the Virgin to a maritime procession. At 12 o'clock at night, all the lights of the town are turned off and thousands of people sing in unison A Rianxeira, a popular Galician song dedicated to Nosa Señora de Guadalupe.
Like the rest of the peninsula of Barbanza, Rianxo is rich in prehistoric sites, among which we should mention the Asados dolmen. Horreos (Galician granaries), mills and pazos (Galician country houses) spread this municipality that borders with the province of Pontevedra.
Continuing towards Boiro is the village of Taragoña with its wide beach. From there, going up to the Castro viewpoint, you get a wide view of the entire Asados valley, the cove of Rianxo, Barbanza and the estuary of Arousa. If you want to spend the night in this area, a good option is to do it in Boiro. In the vicinity of the urban beach of Barraña, which extends from Rebordelo to the estuary of the Coroño River, we will find a campsite and a service area for campers. The 3 km-long promenade along this sandy area has a good sports and leisure infrastructure: an outdoor fitness park, a cycle path, soccer and volleyball fields, a training area, playgrounds and accessible sites.
