Almacenes Gonzalez

This local deli store offers a wide array of scrumptious foods typical of the region - legs of cured ham adorn the walls and hand down from a bar right above the counter, and local cheeses are showcased alongside dried fruit, nuts and wines from the region.


Basket-weaving has a long tradition in Vigo, and the craft is still kept alive by locals (Cesteiros is a street where basket weavers once lived; craftsmen of today showcase and sell their work here, too). Woodwork, ceramics, and precious metal jewellery are some of the arts still fostered and propelled in Vigo, and modern takes on ancient forms often make for very stylish designs.
