How to get there

By car
The principal access is the AC-862 road from Ferrol to Foz and Ribadeo, which connects in Neda with the AP-9 motorway to A Coruña, a total distance of 99 km from the capital of our municipality. Ferrol is 53 km away. This main road also provides access to several other minor coastal and inland roads leading to the various parishes and villages located within the municipality.

From Madrid, another option is to take the A-6 highway as far as Rábade (junction 510) or Baamonde (junction 523). After driving through Vilalba and As Pontes de García Rodríguez, you should take the AC-101 road to Ortigueira. This route finishes at the Festival’s official car park and links up with the AC-862, which will take you to the town centre.
