Parador de Monforte de Lemos

Plaza Luis de Góngora y Argote, s/n
Monforte de Lemos, 27400, Lugo 

Parador de Santillana, Cantabria, Spain
17th century benedictine monastery

The monumental group of buildings of San Vicente do Pino stands at the highest point of the town of Monforte de Lemos: the Torre del Homenaje, the monastery of San Vicente do Pino and the Palace of the Counts of Lemos, these last two housing the Parador de Monforte.

The origins of the monastery date from the 9th century, although the present building, which replaced an earlier one on the same site, was built in the 17th century in the Neoclassical style. The Neoclassical central cloister boasts very fine stonework and is the monument’s main point of architectural interest. 

The restored monastery is now a hotel with 50 rooms, distributed around the central cloister and an annex known as 'Casa del Monte Fuerte’, with a total capacity of 100 guests.

Hunting and fishing are typical local activities.

Here you can enjoy excellent trout or eels, and game such as venison and hare. Lacón con grelos (a pork and vegetable stew) with chorizo sausage; zorza sausage, tripe, and octopus Feira style are other typical local dishes. 

In addition to the standard hotel services such as restaurant, café, function rooms, etc., the Parador features a sauna, Jacuzzi, seasonal pool and Internet connection. 

The Condes de Lemos Palace houses the convention and banquet rooms.
