Tour description

Discover the beautiful Roman city of Ourense known as the “City of Gold” from the hand of a local guide.
This city, on the banks of the river Miño , stands out for its abundant hot springs , its Roman archaeological remains , its medieval past with its Cathedral and its many narrow streets that will take you to another era. Many artists and writers were inspired by this city, located in a magical setting such as the Ribeira Sacr a and famous for its good gastronomy and traditions.

We will start with the Roman past of Ourense in Las Burgas, ancient hot springs where the Romans used to go to enjoy and which are still done by the people of Ourense today.
We will continue entering the Old Town until we reach the Plaza Mayor , where we will find some of the main monuments such as the Town Hall or the Episcopal Palace.

We will continue through different squares with names that already tell us about the past of the activity of the people of Ourense such as the Plaza del Trigo until we reach the beautiful Cathedral, Romanesque and Gothic and whose "Pórtico del Paraíso" has little to envy the famous "Pórtico de la Gloria ”of the Cathedral of Santiago.

We will continue towards the Alameda and its beautiful Mercado de Abastos where we will see all the fresh Galician products and later we will arrive at the Plaza do Ferro , known as the wine area.
We will continue to finish by very mysterious places that will surprise you in the city of Ourense.

Do not miss it! Galicia has many cities that are worth exploring. Join us!

El tour se hizo pesado. Demasiada información de los edificios y muy aburrido en general. Faltaron anécdotas, interacción.
