Fodor's Review

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.
