SAINT ADRIAN

Every June 16th or the following Sunday if that date falls on a weekday, the beaches of Area Maior and Canido are the first places the procession of Saint Adrian, passes through.

Early in the morning, worshippers, locals, and barefoot devotees accompany the statue of the Saint some 2.5 miles along the path connecting Malpica to the sanctuary, which is located at the cape of Monte Beo and just opposite the Sisargas islands. At 200 yards above sea level, the views are amazing.

Before returning at sunset to the parish church, the procession passes through Seaia, where the Franciscan monk Pedro Cambón was born in 1738. Did you know that this missionary was one of the founders (1776) of the Mission San Francisco de Asis, the origins of the US city of the same name?

The procession has been declared Fiesta of Galician Tourist Interest. Do you feel like to learn more about Saint Adrian romeria?
