At the highest point in the town of Monforte de Lemos is located the Monumental de San Vicente do Pino consisting of the Torre (Tower) de Homenaje, the Monastery de San Vicente do Pino and the Palacio de los Condes de Lemos, in the latter two buildings can be found the Parador de Monforte (a luxury hotel).
The origin of the monastery dates back to the 9th century, although the current building was built much later in the 17th century in the Neoclassical style. The monastery building has a central neoclassic cloister constructed from finely cut stone and is the most important architectural feature of the monument.
Following its restoration, the monastery has been converted into a hotel with 50 bedrooms surrounding the central cloister and an annex building called the "Casa del Monte fuerte" with a further 100 places.
It has a restaurant that specialises in regional dishes and a café.
The Parador boasts a gym, jacuzzi and summer swimming pool.
The Parador also has numerous rooms suitable for banquets, conventions, meetings, etc.
Closed from January 3rd to February 16th.
