Ourense (also spelt Orense) is the capital of the province of the same name. A highlight of the city is the Ponte Vella, an old stone bridge connecting the two banks of the River Minho. Much of the city is actually south of the river although the train station is north of it. The bridge still features parts of the original Roman bridge and was restored in the 13th and 17th centuries. Another highlight in the city is the pretty main square (Plaza Maior), where markets and cultural events tend to take place. The city has a great tapas culture and is a good place to stay and explore more of the area from.
The province is most notable for its many hot springs. Many of them are located along the River Minho and include Termas de Outeriz, Pozas de Muiño da Veiga and Termas A Chavasqueira. There are also some beautiful green spaces such as the Area de Allariz Biosphere Reserve and the Serra do Xures Nature Reserve. For wine lovers, Ourense is home to the Ribeiro Wine Route, where you’ll find many wineries to visit. Wine villages that are worth a visit include Ribadavia, Caballiño and Borboras.
The nearest airport to Ourense is Vigo Airport, which is about 90kms west of the city. It also has car hire services and is particularly convenient if you’re flying in to it.
