Information

The Parador is just two kilometers from Verín, the Monterrei district’s main town, located in the province of Ourense, close to the Portuguese border. The Támega River flows through the city. In addition to its springs and Monterrei Castle, it is known for its ancient Carnival celebrations.

If you decide to spend a while exploring the fortress of Monterrei, you will discover three walled areas; a castle, of which all that remains is the keep; Santa María de Gracia, a Gothic-style church; the Palace of the Counts of Monterrei, which houses a small museum of sacred art; and the former pilgrim hospital, which today provides lodging for pilgrims traveling to Santiago de Compostela.

Verín's Carnival festivities have been declared a national tourist attraction. You will be amazed by such entertaining traditions as flour fights, and by others deeply rooted in the local culture, such as El Cigarrón, a key figure in the celebrations who dresses in an exquisitely decorated carved wooden mask with cowbells around his waist, lashing locals and visitors alike with a whip. This festival is truly an experience!

Environment

Verín is a lovely town in the southeast part of the province of Ourense, on the banks of the Támega River. In addition to the medieval fortress of Monterrei (opposite the Parador), other areas of interest include La Merced Square, the spring at Cabreiroá, San Lázaro Chapel, Viriato Square, the avenue along the Támega River, La Alameda Gardens, El Rey Square and the Main Square, among others.

The town was originally a Roman villa. During the medieval period, Verín lost its dominance and Monterrey became the focal point of the territory, with life in the district revolving around its counts and lords. It was a peaceful farming town in the Middle Ages, although often caught up in the military conflicts of the successive rulers of Monterrey, as well as border disputes between Spain and Portugal.
