Discover the beautiful Roman city of Ourense known as the "City of Gold" with a local guide.
This city, on the banks of the Miño River , stands out for its abundant hot springs , its Roman archaeological remains , its medieval past with its Cathedral and its many narrow streets that will transport you to another era. Numerous 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 the people of Ourense continue to do 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 to the famous "Pórtico del Paraíso" of Glory” of the cathedral of Santiago.

We will continue towards Alameda and its beautiful Mercado de Abastos where you will see all the fresh Galician products and later we will arrive at 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!

"There are three things in Ourense that there are not in the rest of Spain: the Holy Christ, the Roman Bridge and the Burgas boiling water".


This saying perfectly defines what we are going to show in this tour:

We will begin in the Plaza Mayor, the heart of the old town of Ourense, talking about its Roman origins that still play a leading role in the city today, such as its baths or the Roman Bridge.

Of course, the Mercado de Abastos is also part of this route, between the Alameda park and Las Burgas.

We will visit the Cathedral of San Martiño de Ourense, known for housing the chapel with the Holy Christ , whose image of Christ on the cross seems to be alive, as tradition says that even his hair grows. In the Cathedral you can also see the Pórtico del Paraíso , one of the most impressive and best preserved porticos reminiscent of that of the Cathedral of Santiago.

The well-known “wine area” is located in the surroundings of the Cathedral, because if Ourense is known for something, it is also for its gastronomy and great variety in its tapas area within the old town and the best place to end our route.

Do you think they are enough reasons to discover the city of Ourense with us?
