The Monumental Complex of San Vicente do Pino is located in the highest part of the town of Monforte de Lemos. It is formed by the Keep, the Monastery of San Vicente do Pino and the Palace of the Counts of Lemos, where the Parador de Monforte is located.
The building we see today was built in the seventeenth century on the medieval ruins of the original construction and retains the majestic cloister with three floors and five arcades on each floor, ideal for events and celebrations.
The hotel also has numerous bedrooms, access facilities, gym, Jacuzzi and outdoor swimming pool.
The town of Monforte is known as the Galician El Escorial thanks to the impressive architecture of the Colegio de los Escolapios, a building more than 100 meters long that took three centuries to complete.
Coats of arms for the Counts of Lemos, the House of Alba and the Piarist Fathers hang on the walls; while the museum is home to paintings by El Greco and Andrea del Sarto, among others.
Monforte de Lemos is also the perfect place for discovering the Ribeira Sacra, the rivers, vineyards, Romanesque churches, cuisine and festivities.

A walk-through Monforte de Lemos will take us to the Colegio de los Escolapios, a majestic building that receives the nickname of El Escorial de Galicia, as construction lasted over three centuries.
Its impressive façade is striking, and is copied in the Monasterio do Pino, one of the buildings forming the Monumental Complex of San Vicente do Pino.
Next to the monastery are the Torre de Homenaje and the Palacio de los Condes de Lemos, today home to the Parador de Turismo.
From the city of Monforte there are many activities on offer. These include visiting the wineries of Ribeira Sacra, sailing along the rivers Miño and Sil, driving past the main viewpoints and Romanesque monasteries, or visiting other nearby towns.
