Just a few kilometres from A Coruña is Galicia's (possibly Spain's) capital of mussels.
A charming fishing village for seafood lovers.
A wee, pretty fishing village some 20 kilometres (12 miles) from A Coruña, Lorbé is located along the coast of the Ría (Estuary) de Betanzos in Oleiros township. It's especially well known locally for its bateas (mussels- farming offshore platforms). Beyond these tasty mollusks, the town also is big on other seafood including oysters and salmon, but the claim to fame is first and foremost its high-quality farmed mussels - which of course can be sampled in any local eatery at quite affordable prices. Every August, Lorbé celebrates that fact with an annual mussels festival that's the highlight of its year.
