Parador de Santo Estevo

Monasterio de Santo Estevo, off CV323 beyond Luintra, 26 km (16 miles) northeast of Ourense, Ourense, 32162, Spain

Clinging to the edge of the Cañon do Sil, this parador, carefully built into the colossal 12th-century Benedictine Monasterio de Santo Estevo, stands out for its atmospheric setting and spectacular vistas. It's worth the extra cost for a superior room overlooking the Cañon and forested hillside. Designer furniture and intriguing artwork by well-known Spanish artists pepper the common spaces and lounge areas, and a spa with a bubbling outdoor Jacuzzi encourages reconnection with nature. The cavernous restaurant is grand, yet the food lacks depth.

PROS

  • magnificent setting
  • historical sanctuary surrounded by nature

CONS
