Although the coasts of Galicia are spectacular, its interior is just as fascinating. We will make a unique tour through very varied and charming areas between Santiago de Compostela, Ourense and Lugo.
Day 1. Starting Point - Santiago de Compostela
On the first day, our driver will pick you up at the airport or train station and we will go to the designated accommodation in Santiago de Compostela, which will be your resting place for one night. We chose Santiago because it has different stations that we can access easily and thus we take the opportunity to see this magnificent city. This day, after check-in at the hotel, we will take a guided tour. We will see different places in this town, declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity, such as its Cathedral, entering through its Pórtico de la Gloria, Platería de Platerías, Plaza del Obradoiro or the Parador Reyes Católicos.
After the tour and if time permits, we can take the opportunity to try its exceptional cuisine such as Galician broth, octopus, pork loin, cheeses and wines.
We will end the day sleeping in the assigned accommodation.
Day 2. Santiago - Monastery of Oseira - Allariz - Ourense
After a good rest in the accommodation in Santiago we will have breakfast and check-out. Our driver will be waiting for us to travel towards Ourense making some very interesting stops.
The first visit will be the Monastery of Oseira, a monastery that after a century of neglect underwent a restoration where a remarkable library and a small archive were added. Then a group of Cistercian monks settled in and worked very hard to bring the town back to its greatest splendor. A must see place passing so close to it.
Depending on the time we have, there are two options. If we have the opportunity, it would be advisable to do both. In Ourense we can check-in and visit the city and eat or we can go to a municipality called Allariz. It is a charming place that received the European Urban Planning Award for the rehabilitation of its historic center where we can also enjoy its gastronomy and then visit Ourense.
After a fairly full day we will rest at the chosen accommodation in Ourense.
Day 3. Ourense - Viña Costeira Winery - Ribadavia - Castelo de Ribadavia - Outariz Hot Springs
Once we have had breakfast at our accommodation in Ourense, our driver will transfer us to Ribadavia, where we will enjoy a guided tour. Ribadavia, which is a fascinating place on the banks of the Avia river; it is a pleasure to walk through its beautiful streets. In the town we find several places to eat or simply have some tapas. In the same town we will find the Castelo de Ribadavia very close to its main square.
After this guided tour of the old town of Ribadavia, we will be transferred to the D.O. Ribeiro called La Viña Costeira, including a special wine tasting.
We will have the option to eat at the Viña Costeira winery or have the driver drive us back to Ribadavia to eat and enjoy his excellent gastronomy.
After resting the meal, we go to the Outariz Thermal Baths, where we can freely choose to relax with an open-air thermal bath.
The Thermal Baths are a place of Zen relaxation where you will find all the comforts of oriental civilization with its most innovative Japanese-inspired techniques.
Finally, we will return to the accommodation and enjoy a good rest in Ourense.
Day 4. Ribeira Sacra - Catamaran Route through the Sil Canyon - Monforte de Lemos - Spa
We will start the day having breakfast at the accommodation in Ourense. After check-out, our driver will head to the Monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil, which was one of the most important monasteries in the Ribeira Sacra during the Middle Ages, but in the confiscation of 1835 the place was definitively abandoned. Much of the monastery is preserved in good condition and is in a spectacular area with wonderful views of the Canyon.
Following the river near the Ribeira Sacra Viewpoint in Vilar de Cerrada, we find the Santo Estevo Pier where we will enjoy a Catamaran Cruise through the Sil Canyon.
According to mythology, the Sil Canyon was the result of one of the feelings most closely linked to human beings, jealousy. Jupiter, father of the gods of Roman mythology, was totally in love with Galicia, Juno, his wife, seeing the love he professed for the community decided to create a wound that would make Jupiter disenchanted with the area, the Sil Canyon. Far from achieving his goal, he became extremely angry with Juno whom he eternally condemned to wander through the wound created.
On this catamaran ride along the river, you will be able to admire the falls that reach 500 meters in various areas, the slopes of more than 70% or the canyon walls with lower slopes where the centenary vineyards of the Denomination of Ribeira Sacra Origin.
For lunch we can go to Monforte de Lemos where we can make a stop on the way at the Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil Monastery, a Baroque and Romanesque monastery with an origin that dates back to the 6th and 7th centuries. After eating in Monforte de Lemos we can visit the Monastery of San Vicente do Pino, which is a monumental complex guarded by the remains of the Castle of San Vicente, of which the Torre del Homenaje and its walls are preserved.
When we finish, we will go to the accomodation where we will have the opportunity to enjoy a great "relax" moment.
Day 5. Monasteries of Samos - Sarria - Lugo
After breakfast and check-out of the Monforte de Lemos accommodation (if we wish before we can have a thermal bath), our driver will pick us up at the agreed time and we will go to the Monastery of Samos, where we will enjoy a guided visit.
The Monastery of San Julián and Santa Basilica de Samos, has an early medieval origin, specifically from the time of the Visigothic Kingdom in the 7th century, its foundation being attributed to San Martín Dumiense and renovated by San Fructuoso.
Unfortunately, two great fires star in the most outstanding events in the recent history of the abbey, which, at present, shows no trace of them and later became the headquarters of the Benedictine Order.
With the visit concluded, we have the option of eating in Samos or Sarria, or directly heading to Lugo to eat. Once we are in Lugo we will visit the city (free visit), where undoubtedly what stands out most are the Roman walls of the ancient Lucus Augusti. We can see in its old town its provincial museum, the Casa dos Mosaicos and its cathedral.
We will spend the night in the assigned accommodation.

Once we arrive, we will check-in at the assigned accommodation in Santiago de Compostela.
