Going to a magosto in autumn is an essential gastronomic experience in Vigo. It's the end of the harvest and chestnut season, and formerly neighbours gathered to preserve food for the winter. Now a magosto is an occasion to meet again around a fire, listening to traditional songs and tasting these delicious nuts, which were once essential in our Galician diet. They are currently exported all around the world, prepared as sweets, canned or as flour. But the experience of a popular magosto in Vigo is incomparable.
