1. Parador de Pontevedra

How does a night in a palace sound? At Paradores, our locations always have a story to tell, because these buildings have been around for centuries. This is definitely the case with the Parador de Pontevedra, a 16th-century Renaissance palace located in the old quarter of this historic city. If you visit during Holy Week, you'll find yourself very close to two of the most sought after sights by tourists travelling to Galicia: La Toja Island and Sanxenxo Beach.
