The holidays of December is one of those dates indicated in the calendar, which is usually used to discount the free days that are still loose before the long-awaited Christmas holidays and the beginning of a new year. If you are one of the lucky ones that can be taken on free Friday and stretch the weekend, at Grupo Hotel Scala we propose a complete plan to enjoy the bridge in Padrón: take note!
Get lost in nature
On Thursday afternoon, after settling in the Hotel Scala and giving you a treat by trying the Rescaldo menu of our Asador O'Pazo, you can take advantage of the food and take a walk through some of the natural sites of the area. We recommend you discover the beauty of the Ulla river and feel the strength of its channel in the recreational area of O Xirimbao, a few kilometers from our facilities. Although at this time its famous suspension bridge is closed to the public, it is worth approaching just to enjoy the environment and know the "pesqueiras", a fishing system with centuries of history that is used since Roman times to catch the specimens when they go up the river.
Disconnect in the water
Friday is the time to pamper yourself. After passing our breakfast buffet, we recommend you take the car to the nearby Termas of Cuntis, located less than half an hour from the Scala. This historic spa allows users to enjoy its acquaform, a recreational-thermal circuit with waterfalls, countercurrent areas, massage jets, Finnish sauna, jacuzzis, steam stoves and many others. After soaking the day you will end up so relaxed that you will not want to do much more, but on your return to the hotel it is worth doing a little effort: how about a seafood dish?
Soak up the Christmas spirit
For Saturday we suggest a plan that never fails, especially for Christmas lovers: visit the famous Birth Christmas Scene. Declared of Tourist Interest, this birth in movement is one of the most impressive compositions of Galician Christmas, with a peculiarity that makes it unique: besides the traditional figures of the Magi or the shepherds, there are also numerous current characters who narrate the social chronicle of the year. These festivities, visitors can meet Pedro Sanchez, Puigdemont, Abel Caballero, Freddie Mercury or the royal family.
In the evening, we invite you to enjoy a Christmas dinner in the Scala hotel rooms ideal for those traveling as a group, and for which we have prepared three very special menus. Yes, reserve your place as soon as possible: there are only a few spaces left!
Advance Christmas shopping
Arrived on Sunday it is time to pack your bags, but not before visiting the largest Sunday market in Galicia, which is celebrated in Padrón. Start the day with a chocolate with churros and advance the Christmas shopping in its many positions: Seafood? fresh products? Textile? Whatever you are looking for, there you will find it for sure! Fire the day by having a good octopus with wine from the country in one of its booths. You are ready to go home!
