Parador Castillo de Monterrei


The Parador de Monterrei is located on top of what many historians consider the largest acropolis in Galicia. Over the centuries this structure has had different uses, ranging from a defensive site to pilgrim hospital. The guest rooms of this enchanting hotel offer the best view in the area. The Parador's architectural layout makes it possible for guests to stay in the former Palacio de los Condes (Palace of the Counts - 7 rooms) or the Casa Rectoral (rectory - 5 guest rooms), both situated within the walled site.
