WITH THE AIR OF A GALICIAN COUNTRY HOUSE

Located opposite the Monterrei fortress, the Parador recreates the construction of a traditional Galician country house, with a central battlemented tower, beautiful, panoramic views of the castle and Verín and the Valley's prestigious vineyards. Some of the bedrooms have views of the refreshing swimming pool and the gardens. 'Merluza a la gallega' (hake Galician style) and 'filloas' (type of crepe) in cream scented with eau de vie are good examples of the gastronomy on offer.

What to eat...

Enjoy the exquisite hakefish. The Galician cuisine is full of delicious courses, as for example: 'filloas' (kind of pancakes), 'lacón con grelos' (salted shoulder of pork), and above all, the hakefish done in the Galician way.
