The arrival of August brings to Padrón, one more year, one of the most important gastronomic events in Galicia: the XL Festa do Pemento de Herbón. The festival, declared of tourist interest, is held every year on the first Saturday of this summer month, bringing together hundreds of people who come together to enjoy the good atmosphere and, how could it be otherwise, the unique flavor of these delicious peppers. But for those of you who are unable to attend do not worry, because we have prepared several tips so that no one is left without trying one of the star products of Galician gastronomy.
If there is something characteristic of summer, that is the popular festivities. From the night of San Juan that begins the summer season and until well into September, the people of Galicia take to the streets to enjoy some of the funniest days of the year. Of course, such a festive town as Padrón could not be left behind, and on July 24 and 25 it celebrates the Santiaguiño do Monte in style.
This celebration, which stars in the pilgrimage of the 25th and which has hundreds of followers and decades of tradition, has been reconverted over the years to also show its younger and more casual face. Folklore and modernity united in a single party that makes us ask ourselves a question: which one do you choose?
The Cathedral is undoubtedly one of the greatest treasures of Santiago. bAnyone who comes to the capital of Galicia has a mandatory appointment with this monument, one of the most important in our country. And now, the reasons for approaching the Cathedral are even greater.
A little more than a month ago the scaffolding of the Obradoiro façade was removed and finally, after years of work, visitors can see the most well-known face of the Cathedral of Santiago restored. The magic that comes from approaching the emblematic Plaza del Obradoiro to observe the baroque facade of the Cathedral is very difficult to describe. Must be lived!
One more year, queens, kings, merchants or dragons, fill the streets of Padrón, making that who is in these lands travel in time to the Middle Ages, and that is because the 13th Padrón Medieval Fair, is here!
If you still do not have plans for July 6, 7 and 8, from the Grupo Hotel Scala, we invite you to spend an epic weekend that you will not forget, you sing up?
Although he put up resistance, it seems that summer has come to stay Padrón and, also, to our restaurant. Now that the days are longer and the streets and our dishes are filled with light and colour, we think the perfect time to show you the changes we have been incorporating in recent months to our rooms:

Galician Letters Day is celebrated on May 17th and it is a tribute to the Galician literature, but, above all, to our language. This year, it is going to be dedicated to Mª Victoria Moreno Vázquez. In its first edition, in 1963, 55 years ago, the honour was awarded to Rosalía de Castro, one of the most important figures in the Galician cultural scene for her eagerness to regenerate our language.
