We are finally at the doors of one of the best months of the year: December. Time for parties, rest and getaways. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a small vacation during the December bridge, from the Hotel Scala Group we propose the best plan in Padrón.
Here, just 21 kilometers from Santiago de Compostela, you will find a beautiful enclave between the Sar and Ulla rivers. Cradle of great literary figures such as Rosalía de Castro and Camilo José Cela, Padrón is a place full of culture, heritage and gastronomy.
Know your historical center
Noble houses and churches between cobbled streets, the beautiful Espolón promenade on the banks of the Sar or one of the oldest Botanical Gardens in Spain. A place full of life and history that will wrap you among its different monuments.
The Literary Register
In our town is the House of A Matanza, House-Museum dedicated to Rosalia de Castro, where he spent his last years of life. There personal items and original versions of the author's works are preserved. Take advantage of this bridge to soak up Galician literary culture in a different way in Padrón.
Enjoy the Recreational Area of Santiaguiño do Monte, where nature and spirituality merge into a perfect natural enclave led by a beautiful hermitage. You will also find, following the Sar river channel from the center of Padrón, the Sar-Ulla Mouth Recreational Area, ideal for enjoying a rest day.
In the surroundings, very close to our hotel, you can also find parks worth visiting, such as the Recreational Area of Xirimbao (Teo) or Ximonde (A Estrada), joined by one of the longest suspension bridges in Galicia. Breathe nature on your rest days in Padrón.
Visit the Valén Artisan Bethlehem
Declared of Tourist Interest, this birth in motion is one of the most unique compositions of Galician Christmas. Welcome these parties in this town just 5 kilometers from Padrón and visit this famous nativity scene that, with more than 4500 pieces, represents popular characters, traditional crafts, local businesses and figures of today. Will not leave you indifferent!
Enjoy the Padrón market
