Ourense is a city located in the region of Galicia in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula on the banks of the river Miño. The neighbourhoods of the city are connected by eight bridges. The oldest one is the Puente Romano (Roman Bridge) also known as the Puente Mayor (Main Bridge) or Puente Viejo (Old Bridge), which has its origin in the 1st century. Particularly interesting is its old quarter, full of restaurants, bars and taverns where you can enjoy the local gastronomy, as well as the cathedral of San Martiño, which was completed in the 13th century. In its main gate you can admire the Pórtico del Paraíso (Door of Paradise), an imitation of the Pórtico de la Gloria (Door of Glory) of the Cathedral of Santiago, which still conserves its original polychromy.

Ourense is also known for its hot springs. These are located both in the city in As Burgas, where the water comes out at 64-68 ºC, or along the river Miño such as in the thermal complex of Outariz, 4 km from the city. In the rest of the region there are different spas, such as Lais, Arnoia or Cortegada.
