Parador de Tui - Traditional Galician Manor House (4*)
The Parador de Tui occupies a traditional Galician Manor House located 1km from Tui town centre, on the northern Portuguese border. The Parador combines its striking granite-walled and castellated tower with a modern extension. Plenty of large windows give this Parador a bright and airy feel, and allow guests to make the most of the stunning natural scenery.
Aiming to emulate the traditional Galician rural mansions of the past, Tui's Parador features wooden flooring, ceilings, and beams prominently throughout the property. The large stone terrace boasts incredible views over the Miño River, as well as offering a seating area to recline and take in the peaceful evenings with a drink.
Bedrooms offer a mix of traditional and contemporary styles with some featuring dark wood furniture and hangings, whilst others are decorated in pale colours creating a light atmosphere.
A luscious garden surrounds Tui’s Parador providing plenty of space to relax, and a lovely place for evening walks amongst the flowers. The verdant garden area features a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and a children’s play area.
Locally caught fish is much in evidence on the menu in the restaurant, for example in the Empanada de Zoubas o bacalao (pastry filled with fried onions and sardines or cod). Other dishes on offer include Caldo Gallego (a stew of broad beans, potato, greens and cabbage) and Tarta San Ero (a chocolate sponge cake).
Parador's 'Gastrobar' concept
Extensive lunch and dinner menus are served in the 'Gastrobar', which offers a range of meal options from light snacks to 3 course dinners in an informal but well serviced environment. We hope you enjoy this new experience.
