Patron Enrique Peinador Vela developed this initiative in the 19thcentury. The thermal spa enjoyed moments of great splendour, receiving visits from illustrious figures such as Castelao, Queen Isabel of Portugal or Emilia Pardo Bazán. It had a printing press, and launched the weekly journal La Temporada and the magazine Mondariz. It even had its own currency, the Peinador. The Civil War brought this activity to a halt, and a fire in 1973 put an end to a golden age, although some rooms were equipped for use as a thermal spa that operated until 1994, when the new and modern facilities were designed.
One of the main highlights of the town is the Grand Hotel, designed by the architect Jenaro de la Fuente. The hotel was built over the old clinic hotel, an unfinished project by Antonio Palacios. Other outstanding features include the statue of Peinador; the thermal springs of Troncoso and A Gándara, on which Palacios built a polished granite pavilion; the Municipal Water Museum and the Water Palace.
Enjoy the surroundings
The small municipality of Mondariz-Balneario is located in the natural space of the river Tea valley, an environment of great ecological and scenic beauty that invites you to rest. This thermal village is only half an hour from the city of Vigo.
The town offers the visitors the possibility to engage in a wide variety of activities in contact with nature. Canoeing lovers can navigate the river Tea, which also has a riverside beach and a trout reserve, and enjoy no-kill fishing.
Walkers can enjoy various hiking trails, particularly the one that runs through the old thermal spa, with its French garden and its two fountains, and the lesser-known route around the 13th-century chapel of San Pedro. More relaxed excursions can also be made, both by bicycle and on horseback, through the verdant Tea Valley.
The Cíes Islands offer beautiful landscapes, quiet sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and forests with large pine forests. As part of the National Park of the Atlantic Islands, visitors can enjoy Rodas Beach, with its calm, crystalline waters and blue flag. Those who wish to discover the island have multiple options, such as climbing to the highest point, the Monte. They can also admire the remains of the Monastery of San Estevo, where the visitors' centre is based.
The area is characterised by its excellent gastronomy, closely associated with the riches of its rivers. These includes lamprey, elvers, eels, and salmon, all washed down with delicious local wines.
