Galicia in general, and Costa da Morte in particular, are synonymous with good food, any recommendations of typical dishes to discover Coristanco through the palate?
Cocido (stew), game and any food with potatoes are dishes that can be tasted in our town due to the good quality of the product.
What do the people who visit you tell you? What do they like most about their stay in Coristanco? And about Costa da Morte?
The intensity of the green vegetation and the tranquillity and peace of the corners of the Costa da Morte.
Your three favourite beaches in Costa da Morte? Why those? And for lovers of surfing and other nautical-sports activities?
Razo, Baldaio and Beo. Without a doubt the favourite for surfing activities would be Razo in the municipality of Carballo.

In our municipality we have 3 marked routes in Seavia, Hueca and Verdes where you can observe the vegetation and the rivers of the municipality and the tranquillity of what we talked about before. Outside the town hall without a doubt the Route of the Lighthouses.
What place do you think is the unknown grain in Costa da Morte but has a great interest or potential?
The mountains of Penavia and the lagoon of Alcaián.
Where do you find the best sunset?
From the Church of Hueca pointing our view towards Xaviña, from Fisterra, the beach of Los Cristales in Laxe seem to me the most beautiful.
