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!


For the time being, and due to the exceptional circumstances related to COVID-19, Common kitchen and Laundry services are not available.

Vila Nova de Cerveira: the Village of arts and Nature

Mixed harmonious "Estado Novo" (old school) and modern architecture, the Youth Hostel of Vila Nova de Cerveira offers a pleasant set of different sensations.

Inserted in a small and hospitable village, its visitors can enjoy beautiful landscapes, against the backdrop of the Minho River on one side and the hill on the other, where the King Cervo monument provides the most luxuriant views. The Castelinho Park is one of the must visit places, as well as the Moinhos da Gávea or the Convento de San Payo. Being the "Village of the Arts", the International Biennial of Contemporary Art is the great ex-libris of the land. In summer the entertainment is guaranteed, with festivities, events and various concerts, but those who prefer to rest, enjoy an idyllic setting.

And Spain is so close by, just cross the Bridge of Friendship.
