About Ourense

Ourense has a wonderful historic quarter, built up when this Galician city was a key trading point in the 11th Century, great tapas and some tempting thermal baths, so it's an unusual but ideal mini-city-break destination. And our list of the best places to stay in Ourense leads towards the romantic.

Ourense the city is capital of Ourense the province. Ourense was built up by the Romans, who were keen on the local hot springs, called the Burgas - one of Europe's largest complexes, which offers both free, outdoor bathing, and an opulent indoor spa experience.

There's even one spa within the labyrinthine Medieval quarter. Which is also where you'll find many of Ourense's other interesting sights, including its spectacular 12th Century cathedral. Ourense has the charm of Galicia's smaller centres, with plenty of plazas in which to take a break from exploring the narrow streets.

  • Unique and romantic, Palacio de Bentraces, a converted Spanish nobleman's house with just four luxurious rooms to let, is filled to the brim with art and antiques. The gardens are beautiful, surrounding a large pool and they serve delicious Galician food on request.
