Muros is located north of the Ría de Muros and Noia. The main activity in Muros is fishing and it receives a large number of visitors in summer who come to this lively coastal town to enjoy its gastronomy and its spectacular beaches.
In winter, it rains in Muros, not always or all the time, and squalls and Atlantic storms bring wind, rain and a mild temperature at this time of year. However, cloudless and bright days are no exception.
This is the best opportunity to know in person why this part of Galicia is called Costa da Morte (Coast of Death), where the great ocean waves break. The lighthouses and the long lonely beaches are transformed into unforgettable walks. Boots and a raincoats are enough to enjoy this experience. Late in the day, listen to the wind next to the hotel's fireplace, with a comforting albariño wine or rias baixas, grown next to this same sea, while the always appetising products of the estuary arrive in the many nearby bars, taverns and restaurants.

Walks around the town. We have maps with routes classified according to the time you have available and your preferences, with the points of interest on the route: the harbour always lively and varied. At sunset, auction at the fish marke. The historical Muros, with or without a guide. And, of course, always with the sea in sight from the tide mills to Rebordiño lighthouse.

The hiking trails are well signposted and offer a wide variety of routes, from the popular circular route of Monte Louro to routes of greater distance, themed routes, such as the petroglyphs, the mills, the hidden coves or the viewpoints in the heights surrounding the town. The hotel will provide you with maps of the routes, indicating the distances, times and difficulty, with their most important points.
Discover the streets and squares of Muros with suggestive names as Suffering, Patience or Venus which make us imagine the life of this seafaring town, with centuries of isolation and a life of its own. The visitor will come across surprises and curiosities already lost in other Spanish fishing villages.
Muros has a variety of large, small, quiet, crowded, hidden, natural or urban beaches ranging from the one across the hotel to Area Mayor. All of them with fine sand and very clean waters which tides and winter swells maintain high levels of quality, as guaranteed by the numerous blue flags in the area.
