May is just around the corner and is presented in Galicia loaded with holidays and bridges to enjoy... in Padrón and the Grupo Hotel Scala. We give you reasons of weight to come because our town is not only the cradle of the Jacobean tradition, the writers Rosalía de Castro or Camilo José Cela or Padrón peppers, but also has a remarkable historical center, an interesting Botanical Garden or the market largest Sunday in Galicia.
Holy Week holidays are approaching and Hotel Scala is an ideal alternative to spend these days because Padrón, in addition to the traditional religious programming, lives at Easter its big village festival with numerous activities for all ages and its privileged location, a shot stone of Santiago and the Rías Baixas, makes it the perfect place to get to know Galicia.
The Galician rivers Miño and Ulla are currently the only ones in Spain where the lamprey is caught, a little evolved fish whose origin goes back more than 500 million years ago. Although its appearance does not seem very appetizing, the amprea enjoys great fame for its exquisite flavor and was already much appreciated by the Romans, who filled Galicia with 'pesqueiras' to capture this delicacy. In Padrón we keep those of Herbón, behind the Franciscan convent, and very close to those of Pontecesures.
Besides being the land of "meigas" (galician name of whitches), Galicia has landscapes that take your breath away. If you like it as much as we do going for a walk and getting lost into the wild, you have reached the right post! Take paper and pen, because we are going to give you some recommendations about the best viewpoints of the Sar region. You won't want to miss these views!
Rosalía de Castro is, without a doubt, the most illustrious author of our land and also of Galicia. Therefore, all Padrón is decorated and prepared a host of cultural activities to pay tribute to the poet, who this February 24 would turn 182 years. In the Grupo Hotel Scala we are also strongly linked to Rosalia's history, and that is why we want to invite you to enjoy the anniversary celebrations with us and to discover a little more about our Pazo Arretén, the place where you were born. Do not miss it!
