Parador de Pontevedra

The Parador, once the residence of the counts of Maceda, is located in the old quarter of the magnificent city of Pontevedra. You will be welcomed by a stately carved stone staircase leading to comfortable guest rooms. The building is decorated with antiques and very valuable classic furniture. It combines regal, noble and stately styles with charming rural elements. The surrounding area invites you to visit coves and beaches, and to enjoy fine seafood and excellent wine.

You won't want to leave without taking a walk through the well-preserved old quarter of Pontevedra, most of which has been pedestrianized. Visit Santa María la Mayor Basilica, a jewel of Gothic architecture, and La Virgen Peregrina Church, a chapel with a scallop-shaped floor plan and beautiful night lighting. Other highlights include Pontevedra Museum, whose collection is held in five different locations: Santo Domingo Monastery, Sarmiento Palace, and the Castro Monteagudo, García Flórez and Fernández López buildings.

A few kilometers from the city, the Rías Baixas region opens onto the Atlantic. You can enjoy fantastic sunsets in spots such as A Toxa Island, urban beaches like Silgar Beach in Sanxenxo, or vast areas of golden sand like A Lanzada Beach.

Meis Golf Course is a long course for the golfer, who needs to be very precise with the tee shot. It is nestled among towering trees, mainly Galician pine and eucalyptus that make an unmistakable sound when hit by the ball, and lush vegetation of ferns and other shrubs which could be hiding witches, goblins, fairies and other characters from Galician mythology. Meis is in a peaceful setting at the top of a hill from where there are wonderful views of the Rías Baixas. The Monte-Castrove Foundation (the Galician Foundation that owns the course) has a collaboration agreement with the Royal Spanish Golf Federation for the assignment of use and the management of the facilities. You can often see wild horses near the edge of the course.

Finally, without a doubt, when you finish your game at Meis you should go back to the Parador de Cambados or the Parador de Pontevedra, have a refreshing shower and then sample the best cuisine in the Rias Bajas in the parador's restaurant, while enjoying the usual post-round blow-by-blow discussion of the game.
