Melide is the place where the route from Roncesvalles and the Primitivo way, which departs from Oviedo, converge. It in just 55 km away from Santiago and many pilgrim stops in their restaurants to taste “Pulpo a la Gallega”.
In Melide visitors can try the best octopus (strangely, always best eaten away from the coast). For this, the Pulperia A Grenache is a good option with good service and reasonable prices. Very close by, but on Avenida de Lugo, Pulpería Ezequiel is located. On the street Ronda de Pontevedra another recommended place for octopus is Pulpeira Curros, its other dishes are also exceptional.
