We love this place. Everything you want in a town, Fab bars within walking distance. Aire right on Estuary, you can fish if you want. Flat ad level, loads of space. But there are occasional market days when you have to clear off

Views, Views, Views. On top of a cliff with nothing between you and America. Sunsets to die for. Head down the track to cliff top or go right to top. Bar if needed.

Next to a sewage works, and does it smell, noisy. Just plain horrible. We only ended up here because the aires in Santiago De Compostella and Ponteverda were worse.
