Good to know

Arzúa is recognized as the land of cheese. This protagonism is due to the D.O.P. Arzúa-Ulloa of the municipality of A Coruña.
Historically, the Codex Calixtino referred to this municipality as a key point for the construction of the Cathedral of Santiago for its ancient lime kilns.

At this point the north road and the French road meet. Arzúa is the last stage before Santiago.

One of the pilgrimage traditions is the one that takes place on the night of San Juan in the Wall of the stars.

Local landmarks

Chapel of Magdalena
