Monasterio de Santo Estevo
Nogueira de Ramuín, 32162, Ourense 

Parador de Santillana, Cantabria, Spain
In the heart of the "Ribeira Sacra"

This Benedictine monastery in the middle of the Ribeira Sacra, an area of outstanding natural beauty where the rivers Miño and Sil meet, is one of Galicia’s monastic centres and now a holiday highlight. 

The existence of the Monastery has been proven in the 10th century, although its origins appear to be in the 6th and 7th centuries. In the monastery styles range from Romanesque to Baroque, with three remarkable cloisters (Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance). The building was declared a Historic and Artistic Monument in 1923.

The Hotel has a total of 77 rooms distributed around three cloisters of different styles and periods. The rooms are particularly interesting as they are all different, some with impressive views over the landscape and the valleys of the river Sil.

The Hotel has a restaurant with terrace by the chestnut forest, a café with terrace in the entrance cloister, lounges and beautiful gardens.  The hotel also has a relaxing spa.

The restaurant offers river products, thanks to its position, and traditional Galician dishes, with the local wines taking a starring role.

Outstanding dishes include octopus, eels and trout. Among the meats, the excellent local beef. Dishes such as lacón con grelos (boiled pork and greens) and cocido (stew) complete the offer. Desserts include Bica de Trives and Bica de Castro Caldelas (local cakes).
