Cambados is a municipality in Galicia , Spain in the province of Pontevedra. Fishing is a major industry in this coastal area of Galicia called Rias baixas. In Cambados, fish and seafood sellers sell at what is called La Plaza, which is a great and hallowed installation that is very busy every morning except for Sundays , as fish is usually part of the daily diet. In Cambados, seafood is mostly collected in "O Serrido" or "A Seca", which is an area of water surrounding the San Tome Tower see below emptying out almost completely when the tide is low, leaving the perfect area for seafood collectors. Large groups of them, mostly women, with a few exceptions once in a while go when the tide is low with their buckets and tools to dig up the sand and collect seafood clams, cockles, etc. The culture in Cambados, as well as most coastal villages of Galicia, very much revolves around seafood. It is always eaten at Christmastime, on holidays, and especially at weddings.
