About the town

Pilgrims walking the Camino Primitivo join the Camino Francés at Melide.

Melide's history has always been connected to Santiago de Compostela and the pilgrimage. In fact this is one of the reasons the town exists.

In 1320 the Archbishop of Santiago granted several privileges to Melide. Among others the town could build a castle, fortify the area by walls and charge taxes.

When staying in Melide, do not miss one of the masses in the Church of Santa Maria, always full of pilgrims, or the "polbo á feira" a very typical food of the area (one type of octopus fried on iron plate). There are special restaurants offering polpo and wine dinners.
