Immerse yourself in the charming scenery of the area and enjoy a catamaran ride out to the mussel beds and taste some fresh mussels farmed from the estuary, accompanied by local wine. You’ll also travel to the traditional village of Combarro, Here you’ll walk the narrow streets of this picturesque village to the seaside where you’ll see two different structures characteristic of the area. One is a raised granary, used for drying and storing grain. The other can be seen floating in the middle of the estuary – a floating dock used for mussel farming. Enjoy some free time to walk around, absorb the atmosphere and take some pictures.


Drive to the charming town of El Grove where you’ll board a catamaran for a cruise along the estuary. Your guide will explain all about mussel farming, which this area is well known for and you’ll be treated to fresh-boiled mussels accompanied by white wine or soft drinks while enjoying the splendid views.
