Palacio de los Condes de Maceda, Parador de Pontevedra

Barón, 19 36002 Pontevedra

Cultural Visit

The Parador, once the residence of the counts of Maceda, is located in the old quarter of the magnificent city of Pontevedra. You will be welcomed by a stately carved stone staircase leading to comfortable guest rooms. The building is decorated with antiques and very valuable classic furniture. It combines regal, noble and stately styles with charming rural elements. The surrounding area invites you to visit coves and beaches, and to enjoy fine seafood and excellent wine.

You won't want to leave without taking a walk through the well-preserved old quarter of Pontevedra, most of which has been pedestrianized. Visit Santa María la Mayor Basilica, a jewel of Gothic architecture, and La Virgen Peregrina Church, a chapel with a scallop-shaped floor plan and beautiful night lighting. Other highlights include Pontevedra Museum, whose collection is held in five different locations: Santo Domingo Monastery, Sarmiento Palace, and the Castro Monteagudo, García Flórez and Fernández López buildings.

A few kilometers from the city, the Rías Baixas region opens onto the Atlantic. You can enjoy fantastic sunsets in spots such as A Toxa Island, urban beaches like Silgar Beach in Sanxenxo, or vast areas of golden sand like A Lanzada Beach.
