In the southern Rias Baixas region, protected from the open sea by a lovely bay, stands Monterreal Peninsula, where the Parador de Baiona awaits. The fortress offers up its walls for a stroll, or to relax and enjoy a beverage by the sea, and magical sunsets where the C?-es Islands in the distance beckon, inviting you to visit their cliffs, beaches and dunes, exploring their underwater depths and virgin trails.
Elegance is a key feature of every room of the Parador. The stately function rooms, spacious guest rooms with sea views and spectacular stone staircase that welcomes you at the entrance are just a few examples of the majesty of this medieval fortress.

Baiona, North Spain
Baiona was the first European port to hear of the discovery of the Americas due to the arrival there in March 1493 of Pinzon in his caravel “La Pinta”. Today’s visitor can see a replica of the famous boat which now houses a museum dedicated to Columbus’ voyage of discovery. An important Atlantic port for centuries there is much to see in Baiona itself where the remains of the medieval walls and castle overlook the sandy beaches. For those wishing to relax and enjoy the beach there are six in all, covering over four kilometres of shore with a lovely Paseo Maritimo for that evening stroll. Popular with the Spanish, in summer the town has a busy nightlife with a wide selection of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. Seafood, of course, is the speciality and what better to accompany it than a glass or two of the local Albariño, arguably Spain’s finest white wine.For those wishing to go further afield the city of Vigo, departure point for the Volvo Ocean Race in 2005, is just half an hour away and from here one can take a boat to the Islas Cies, one of Spain’s most important wildlife reserves, not to be missed by anyone spending time in this area.Santiago de la Compostela is less than an hour and a half away whilst the more adventurous may wish to drive down into northern Portugal with the city of Oporto less than two hours away.Those seeking activities will find them in abundance; sailing, watersports and diving can be arranged in the town itself whilst nearby there are mountains in excess of 2000ft and some more gentle walks starting from the town itself.
