The city of Ourense is located in the northwest of Spain and is actually the capital of Galicia.
Taking a quick trip to Ourense will be a great idea for history buffs, because the town started its life as a Roman settlement because of the local hot springs. The Roman ruins can still be seen today.
Then after the Romans the city continued existing till 716 when it was destroyed by the Moors but later rebuilt by Alfonso III of Asturias in around 877. The city was destroyed once more due to a combination of Norse invasions and the Arab warlord Al-Mansur, so the city was rebuilt again during the 11th century.
Ourense still holds one of the greatest amount of geothermal water in Europe and hence the hot springs are the main tourist attraction of the city. There are several places – called pozas – where you can have a bath outdoors – these can be with or without entrance fee. One of them can be found inside the old town, relating thus to the ancient Roman tradition of having public bath houses.
The great thing about the city is that it can be divided into three parts, one medieval, one related to the 19th century expansion and then the modern area.
The most important monument is the Cathedral which was initially built in 572 and then rebuilt in the 13th century. This is the second oldest cathedral in Galicia. The artistic style is Romanesque in its structure, while decorations are Romanesque and Gothic.
The river Mino is crossed by the Ponte Vella – Old Bridge – which features Roman foundations and was reconstructed in 1230 and very frequently repaired since then.
