Traditionally, and for a good reason,
Lugo has boasted of its cuisine. A few years ago it coined the
slogan: For food, Lugo. It is a privileged province, where the
land will grow practically anything.
By its coast we find one of its most prestigious exchanges, the Burela Exchange. The fields provide fruits and vegetables of optimum quality; the livestock raised in its meadows is excellent. In Lugo they make wonderful cheeses, protected by the four Galician Designations of Origin. Excellent wines are also produced and a long list of gastronomic festivals are celebrated.
