Cantina Feast (27 Oct 2012)

Cantina de la Piranhas e Pez de Colores invites any travellers of good repute to spend a night with excellent food and entertainment in the company of your fellow man.

Rest your weary feet and while away your evening in one of the route de Compostela’s favourite taverns where your hosts Clara and Amadeus will serve up an excellent variety of victuals in the Galician style.

Forget the dust, dirt and tribulations of the road you have walked and the road still before you. Meet travellers returning from the holy site and hear their tales of wonder and miracles.

You are invited to prepare a performance for the assembled company with the theme of pilgrimage or travel, or to bring games to play with fellow guests
