Terras de Ourense e Allariz

Highlight... Ourense, water city

The city of Ourense is intrinsically linked with water. The River Miño that runs through the city flows under its six bridges. The Viaducto, the Ponte Nova, the Pasarela do Vao, the Ponte Romana, the Ponte do Milenio and the Ponte do Ribeiriño are tourist attractions in and of themselves because of their unique layout and the architectural changes they reflect and that one can enjoy strolling the river  promenade on either of its two banks.

Water – hot this time – has also become the most identifying sign of the province's capital. Ourense is also called the 'the city of the Burgas hot springs', because of its hyperthermal springs, rich in silicate, fluoride and lithium salts that have significant dermatological properties; its name is believed to have originated from the Latin burca, which means 'basin', referring to the Roman baths. There are three Burgas hot springs – the upper, the middle and the lower – in popular, modern and neoclassical styles, respectively, and which are the starting point of an outdoor thermal complex on the banks of the River Miño.
