Padrón stands out especially for its literary tradition. This quiet corner on the banks of the Sar River is famous for being the birthplace of renowned writers such as Camilo José Cela or Macías O Namorado, as well as being the place where Rosalia de Castro spent part of her childhood and her last years. So, of course, the town is the perfect place to discover and learn about the life and work of these writers on a unique tour that we propose from Hotel Scala.
Nature lovers are in luck. And very close to the Scala Hotel are some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the entire region. Therefore, if you are wishing to disconnect and stroll among some of the most beautiful landscapes of Galicia, without a doubt, Hotel Scala is your place. We offer you three alternatives to enjoy this unique environment and we recommend that you come with time so you can explore them all. They will surprise you!
Galicia has almost 1,500 kilometers of coastline that hide authentic natural gems. The famous Galician estuaries harbor true wild paradises of white sand, which are waiting to be discovered. The Hotel Scala has a privileged location that brings you closer to these must-see points in which to return to that authentic and natural beach, with the sound of the sea as a soundtrack and the waves unleashing their fury against the rocks as a visual spectacle. The Natural Park of Corrubedo, O Vilar and As Furnas are three natural spaces located just one step from our accommodation and that you can not miss.
The 25th of July is approaching, a great day in Galicia because it is the feast of its patron, Santiago Apóstol. The city of Compostela is already ready to celebrate, as every year its festivities. And it is precisely on the night of July 24 to 25 that the most awaited moment of all this celebration takes place: the fireworks and the audiovisual spectacle in the Plaza del Obradoiro. At Hotel Scala we discover the secrets of one of the most special days of the year in the capital of Galicia and we encourage you to come and contemplate all its magic live when you stay with us.
Summer is the time of year par excellence for making plans outside the home, especially if among them is to attend the many popular festivals or themes parties that spread throughout the Galician geography. Padrón is not far behind, and throughout the month of July it is possible to enjoy an agenda full of activities among which stand out the traditional Medieval Fair and the Santiaguiño do Monte parties. Take note and do not miss any!
Although Padrón is enormously known for being the capital of the last section of the Portuguese Way, many do not know that it is also the origin of the Xacobeo. Precisely to value the Jacobean resources of the town and its importance in the history of the Camino the Pedronía was born, a new itinerary that allows us to know a little more about our history. In the Hotel Scala Group we tell you about it and we invite you to make this credential!
May is just around the corner and is presented in Galicia loaded with holidays and bridges to enjoy... in Padrón and the Grupo Hotel Scala. We give you reasons of weight to come because our town is not only the cradle of the Jacobean tradition, the writers Rosalía de Castro or Camilo José Cela or Padrón peppers, but also has a remarkable historical center, an interesting Botanical Garden or the market largest Sunday in Galicia.
Holy Week holidays are approaching and Hotel Scala is an ideal alternative to spend these days because Padrón, in addition to the traditional religious programming, lives at Easter its big village festival with numerous activities for all ages and its privileged location, a shot stone of Santiago and the Rías Baixas, makes it the perfect place to get to know Galicia.
The Galician rivers Miño and Ulla are currently the only ones in Spain where the lamprey is caught, a little evolved fish whose origin goes back more than 500 million years ago. Although its appearance does not seem very appetizing, the amprea enjoys great fame for its exquisite flavor and was already much appreciated by the Romans, who filled Galicia with 'pesqueiras' to capture this delicacy. In Padrón we keep those of Herbón, behind the Franciscan convent, and very close to those of Pontecesures.
Besides being the land of "meigas" (galician name of whitches), Galicia has landscapes that take your breath away. If you like it as much as we do going for a walk and getting lost into the wild, you have reached the right post! Take paper and pen, because we are going to give you some recommendations about the best viewpoints of the Sar region. You won't want to miss these views!
