The experience

In Vila Nova de Cerveira, we are proud of the green spaces, ecovias (bike paths and roads of low traffic), and a river (Minho) that rises in Spain. We are connected to the arts and crafts in several ways. If you fancy the arts and like to preserve nature and built heritage, here you will find your world. Come here!...

About the host

It is worth coming to spend a few days in Vila Nova de Cerveira!

Famous for the Bienal de Arte Moderna (Modern Art Biennial) held since 1978, in odd-numbered years, and which attracts a large number of domestic and foreign artists, Vila Nova de Cerveira has become a permanent showroom under open skies, yes! in the open, with many of the biennial works scattered across the town. In addition, there are several art galleries, so you can draw the conclusion that Cerveira is the "Village of the Arts" and mandatory destination for lovers of modern art.

For a panoramic overview of the village all the way to Galicia, you have the statue of King Cervo, not forgetting the Aquamuseu (Aqua museum). All places not to be missed, on the magnificent riverfront!

And because this is a friendly town, that you'll certainly like, it is best to come for some time. Paredes de Coura is very near here. With some luck you might still catch the festival!

The Hostel is perfect for you and your friends! Right next to the Hostel you have a biological park, where you can explore botanical trails or play football, basketball, volleyball and anything that takes your fancy!
