The municipality of Abadín is one of the municipalities from A Terra Chá crossed by the North Way of St. James, with a path that runs along the hillside Pena da Roca up to A Xesta. There, the Lugar of Galgao is known for the shrine of San Cosme da Montaña, a place of worship where every September 27th a mass procession is held. On the façade you can see a shell that invites to turn left on a road that crosses the National-634 to reach Gontán, where the hostel for pilgrims and various services such as bars, pharmacy and a small supermarket are located. The district of Gontán maintains two fairs a month – on the first and third Saturday, in addition to large annual events such as Expogrelo or Feira de Santos which has been held the first Saturday in November for more than two centuries. On May 13rd, a feast is celebrated in honor of Our Lady of Fátima, patroness of the chapel of the neighborhood. The central part of the square is occupied by a glass building that once was devoted to the fair of pigs and now appears reconverted as a fair of garden products. It shares space with a remodeled industrial unit for cattle on one side and a new warehouse for the fair of pigs on the other. Across the square we find the place where tasty octopus is prepared at fairs. The recreational area is one of the emblems of the neighborhood. Very well cared for, like most of the urban area it was refurbished a few years ago.
