Between Arcade and Pontecaldelas, Pontevedra, is this ancient stone rectoral. Although it needs to be reformed to extend its useful area, one of the plants is ready to be occupied. The Camino de Santiago Portugués de la Costa passes through this area.
Distribution of the rectory
This house consists of a ground floor and basement-cellar. The ground floor is currently used for housing and it has about 130 m2. It is composed of living room with stone fireplace, kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom. The basement or cellar plant is not rehabilitated, with a dirt floor and has 112 m2. It has a beautiful gallery, which is like an additional living room, with beautiful views, and it has about 17 m2 surface. And the land plot has 3,500 m2. The heating of this house is diesel. To top it off, as seen in the photos, it is necessary to finish well above all the ceilings and put doors. A small excavation would also be necessary to make a car entrance. In total, the living area of this property after the reform would be about 260 m2.
Arcade, a step away from the Ría de Vigo
The most famous oysters of Galicia, and perhaps of Spain, are bred in Arcade. This property that we reviewed is 8 km from the coast approximately. The river Verdugo after crossing the 41 km that has its channel, ends at the estuary of Vigo, between the nuclei of population of Arcade and Puentesampayo (in Galician, Pontesampaio) joined by a beautiful medieval bridge of Roman origin.
For many, the name of Arcade is inescapably linked to that of their oysters: the “Arcade oysters”, delicious mollusc appreciated already in the Roman era and that is currently the object of an active export. There are hardly any natural oyster beds left; which we can take today are the product of cultivation. They were not born here, but they have been made here. But it is growing in the waters of the Arcade estuary, over two or three years, which gives them that special, unmistakable and unique flavour that delights the most demanding palates.
