Ourense is the city of water and a true architectural and monumental treasure thanks to 2,000 years of history where Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Modernist influences converge. The River Minho no longer brings gold today, but it does provide the valuable thermal waters throughout the city. Convenient, relaxed and offering a variety of activities to keep visitors entertained throughout their stay at a hotel in Ourense, this is the ideal destination for trips with family or friends.
When it comes to thermal waters, the historic thermal baths of As Burgas allows visitors to experience an emblematic site with connections to the origins of the city.
Located in the very heart of Ourense’s historic centre and dating back to Roman times, this spring is a source of many legends, as well as healing mineral waters. They say that if you touch the thermal water of As Burgas, you will end up celebrating your wedding there. Other stories speak of mysterious whispers from resident nymphs, to whom the therapeutic properties are attributed.
Indeed, with temperatures of 60º, these waters are known for their almost miraculous therapeutic uses. For this reason, as well as its long history, a visit to As Burgas is a must for any traveller.
The modern layout of the baths is the result of many years of refurbishment and allows this space to be enjoyed to the full. It is a unique spa experience that will make an impression on any visitor to Ourense.
There are also many more hot springs and spas in Ourense, such as O Tinteiro, Outariz and A Chavasqueira.
The Roman Bridge, Santo Cristo, As Burgas, the Praza Maior and the Cathedral, among others, are Ourense’s main points of interest and most emblematic landmarks.
Finding your way to the heart of Ourense is a real orienteering challenge as you navigate the narrow stone streets. A fail-safe tip to avoid getting lost, while enjoying all the charm of this trip back in time, is to walk from square to square.
A stroll through the city will allow those staying at Barceló Ourense to discover historic and striking landmarks such as the Praza Maior, a unique sloping square and the centre of the old city; the Cathedral, a temple with the air of a fortress; the Chapel of Santo Cristo, whose hair is said to grow; and the Praza do Ferro, which is one of the most emblematic sights of the city.
As well as the streets between the squares, you can also stroll from bridge to bridge. As witnesses to the passage of time, the eight bridges over the River Minho are one of the main attractions of this destination. Ponte Vella or Ponte Maior (Old Bridge or Main Bridge) dates back to Roman times and its construction was an important milestone. In fact, this first connection over the Minho is still a symbol of Ourense today.
