Ourense is a place full of magic and enchanting spots: the city, the monumental district, the surrounding towns (Ribadavia, Allariz, Monterrei...) the Ribeira Sacra region, the vineyards of the Ribeiro, a gastronomy that compares to none in the world, the most spectacular Carnival in Galicia, incredible archaeological heritage with megalithic and Roman remains and some of the best conserved examples of the Romanesque to be found.
Ourense is, moreover, Galicia’s thermal spa capital. The thermal waters are closely linked to the city’s history. What is more, among the famous Burgas – right in the historic city centre –the Balnearios de Caldaria thermal baths stand out for the quality and the properties of their waters. A highlight in the leafy lush nature, in addition to the Biosphere Reserve in the Allariz Area, are the Natural Parks of Serra de Xurés and Serra de Enciña da Lastra.
Additionally, its privileged position will give you access to two of Europe’s great wonders: the Cathedral of Santiago – the destination point for the Camino or Way of St James pilgrimage – and the CÍes Islands, a natural Paradise that is on its way to becoming a World Heritage Site.
