Hotels in Pontevedra and Pontevedra Province - Galicia
The province of Pontevedra is composed of the city of Pontevedra and of fifteen rural parishes.  Like much of the western coast of Galicia, Pontevedra has a temperate, rainy climate, but with peculiarities stemming from its location surrounded by mountains and the ría. Temperatures are pleasant for most of the year (mild winters and summers).  An ancient town and medieval port, Pontevedra has been described as a "definitive old gallego town". Sights include the pilgrim chapel in the Praza da Peregrina, the historic Zona Monumental (old city), the Praza de Leña, the market, and the Alameda, a promenade along the ría. One of Christopher Columbus' ships (the "Santa María") was built in Pontevedra.

This hotel in the historic city of Tui, on the Portuguese border, is a faithful reproduction of a pazo or Galician country house, in a setting of mountains and rivers.  This establishment is ideal for sports and activities in natural surroundings.  With its granite walls and floors, ceilings, beams and staircases of local chestnut wood, it recreates the typical pazo of the area.  The gentle colours and rustic furnitire create a welcoming, soothing atmosphere in the comfortable bedrooms. There is also a splendid swimming pool and a beautiful garden.  The food offered in the Parador is a treat for the most adventurous palates. Beef from Galicia, fish, rice with lobster, hake with Albariño wine, exquisite lampreys Tudense style, angulas al ajillo (eels, in season only), and San Ero cake are just a few of the delightful dishes we recommend. Albariños are the stars of the wine list, as the Parador is close to many of the most important producers of this denomination.
