Ourense, water city

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...


Terras de Ourense e Allariz


The geo-destination, Terras de Ourense e Allariz, contains the municipalities: A Merca, Allariz, Baños de Molgas, Barbadás, Coles, Maceda, O Pereiro de Aguiar, Ourense, Paderne de Allariz, San Cibrao das Viñas, Taboadela, Toén, Vilamarín and Xunqueira de Ambía.

From different heights, Ourense and Allariz seem look at each other.

Ourense, noble and Roman, from the banks of the River Miño. Allariz, royal and monumental, from the banks of the River Arnoia.

Ourense is the city of water. In fact, the city's symbols of the city are the Santo Cristo, the Puente Romano Bridge  and the spring of spring of As Burgas, which springs forth at 65 º right in the town centre. It also has a well-preserved Old Town, full of bars and terraces, and also – perhaps to make amends – a wonderful cathedral. In recent years, the banks of the River Miño have become another major boulevard in the city, with a carefully maintained hot springs route that is, in many cases, free.

Allariz, which dates back to the 6th century, has received the European Prize for Urban Planning for the recovery of the old town and the river. A royal residence in the Middle Ages, this is where young Alfonso X the Wise was raised, and it is not surprising that the beauty of the surroundings inspired some of his 'Cantigas'.
