Built in the late fifties in the style of a typical Galician country house, this four-star hotel commands truly spectacular views of the Eo Estuary biosphere reserve, which forms the border between Asturias and Galicia.
From its privileged position on the waterfront in the seaside town of Ribadeo, the hotel offers panoramic vistas of both provinces from its splendid garden and restaurant as well as from some of its bedrooms.

Comfortable and cosy, the Parador is decorated in a traditional, rustic style with classic furniture, creating a atmosphere where you can feel very much at home. Whether relaxing in the garden with a book or, on cooler days, beside the welcoming fire in the bar, the helpful and attentive staff will make sure your stay is a pleasant one.

The hotel's popular restaurant, specialising in fish and seafood and traditional Galician cuisine, will keep the inner man happy and the town, just a gentle stroll away, has plenty more gastronomical and cultural delights in store.

Ribadeo makes the perfect base for exploring into Asturias and Galicia with the interesting little towns of Figueras, Castropol and Vegadeo within a short drive and the medieval whaling port of Rinlo and the magnificent beach of Playa de Los Catedrales, with its awe-inspiring rock formations a little further.

Ribadeo, North Spain

Ribadeo, set dramatically above the beautiful Eo estuary, a biosphere reserve, is, as its coat of arms depicts with its key, the gateway to Galicia!

On the border with Asturias, a formidable bridge crossing between the provinces, it is a centre for sailing and fishing and other water sports and general holiday making.

Though it has seen development, its old town,centred around the Plaza de Espana, houses impressive C19th Casonas Indianos, the C18th Customs House and the San Damian fort, the Convento de Santa Clara and the C15th Casa de Patin.

Don't miss the Capela de Virxe de Camino at the entrance to the town with its exquisite C13th virgin.

Gastronomy is one of its key draws with its fantastic local produce from the sea and the land. Tapas bars, family run restaurants and more sophisticated eateries thrive happily.

Shopping is fun too with old fashioned establishments still mingling with more modern developments.
