Sun terraces, Orense, Galicia

It says a lot about the know-how of the imperial engineers that in the 21st century the Roman bridge built in Orense is still standing, to save the riverbed of the Miño River. It says a lot about the wealth, commercial, industrial and administrative, of this city and the need to maintain it and increase it that there are at least four other bridges built later.

Eclipsated by a city with a large cathedral (that of Santiago) and a city with a small old town (that of Pontevedra), almost equidistant from both, Orense has an intermediate size, and great virtues, to combat the perception of being one of those Galician cities of interior unjustly forgotten by the tourist trends of the day.

Those who do not move away from the coast, or their feet only seek to walk towards Santiago, miss an attractive Orense day and night. And they get lost, among other things:
