The May festivity is approaching, if you are thinking of making a getaway to Hotel Scala, we want to help you discover Padrón and our surroundings with a very varied tourist offer. We tell you 4 very different plans to do on the May festivity if you stay in Padrón. Let's go there!
If your thing is to lose yourself in the middle of nature and discover impressive landscapes, very close to the Hotel Scala you will find Valga. This municipality in Pontevedra is located on the banks of the Ulla River and in it, you can find natural jewels such as the waterfalls and mills of Parafita and Raxoi.
Only about 20 minutes by car from the Hotel Scala, you will enjoy natural bathtubs formed by the waters of the Valga river, in which, if the weather permits, you can even take a dip. A perfect plan!
Around the Hotel Scala and just over half an hour away by car, the Galician coast offers a wide range of beautiful beaches where you can walk when the weather is nice. In this case, we want to recommend As Furnas. This beach is located in the Porto do Son municipality, in O Barbanza, and is characterized by its canals and natural pools formed by wind and water wear on its slate rocks.
Its white sand and the bravery of the sea that bathes it characterize As Furnas, a sandy area also known for being the place that changed the life of Ramón Sampedro. Here you will find a bust and a plaque that honors him for his fight for euthanasia. In recent years, moreover, this beach has also become known for the Fariña series, since that is where you will find the bar and the bank that became famous on television.
The Rosaliana Route or, As Pegadas de Rosalía, is a perfect route for you if you like to take advantage of the rest days to do a small hiking route. In this case, we are talking about an itinerary that follows the life of the writer Rosalía de Castro, so your walk will also be accompanied by a lot of history.
The Rosalia Route runs through the municipalities of Ames, Brión, Dodro, Padrón and Santiago and, among its points of interest, is our Pazo Arretén, from the writer's maternal ancestors. Do not miss it!
If what you prefer is to enjoy spectacular views, in the surroundings of our Hotel Scala you have multiple options but without a doubt, there is one that leaves no one indifferent. It is the Mirador de A Curota, which we have already talked about on other occasions.
This is located in the Sierra de O Barbanza and is just over half an hour from the Hotel Scala. From it you can enjoy a broad perspective of the Rías Baixas, as your gaze will reach the presence of rafts from the Ría de Arousa. Do not miss its magical sunsets!
