Parador de Verín - Traditional Galician Manor House (3*)
Located 2 km from the Galician town of Verín and close to Portuguese border, the Parador de Verín stands next to the impressive Monterrei Castle, and has wonderful panoramic views over the town and the surrounding vineyards. Verín is noted for its unusual medieval-style Carnival, during which masked figures with bells tied to their waists run through the streets brandishing whips.
The Parador itself has an impressive castellated stone tower, and the public rooms have a warm, traditional atmosphere with wooden ceilings, pillars and chandeliers.
There is a children’s play area and a seasonal swimming pool in the garden.
For lunch and dinner services guests will dine in the Parador de Castillo de Monterrei. Typical Galician dishes on the menu at the restaurant include merluza de pincho a la gallega (hake in a sauce of garlic, olive oil and paprika), caldo Gallego (a stew of beans, meat and vegetable) and filloas (crêpes with cream and eau de vie).
Please note the Parador is not open year-round, but guests can stay at the nearby Parador de Castillo de Monterrei when Verín is closed.
