The area: Rias Baixas
The Rias Baixas is the coastal area that is located in the northwestern part of Galicia and more specifically, it comprises two provinces, A Coruña and Pontevedra. Actually, the so called rias are geographical accidents where the mouth of a river is below sea level causing the water to rise. The entire area of the Rias Baixas presents this phenomenon and that is why they receive this name
Another interesting fact about this part of Galicia, has to do with the famous granaries, since depending on where they are, they may receive a different name. In Combarro, you will know them by that term, but if you go to the northwest of Spain they will call them cabazo, while to the south and northeast they will be identified as canastro.
