Alquiler de coches en Ourense

Ourense, with more than 100,000 inhabitants, is the most populated municipality in the interior of Galicia, only surpassed by Vigo and La Coruña. Its origin dates back to the Romans, who settled in this territory. Specifically, in the vicinity of As Burgas, the thermal springs.

It is believed that the name Ourense comes from Auriense, that is, "The city of gold". This metal made it one of the most important provinces of the Empire, until its stocks were exhausted.

The historical importance of the locality is undeniable since, due to the strategic situation of Ourense, this city became an important commercial center since the Middle Ages.

Nowadays, Ourense is a small city but that does not make it any less interesting. You can take advantage of your stay to taste its famous tapas and travel to other places in the province such as the Ribeira Sacra, the Pozas de Melón or the town of Allariz.

And if you want to immerse yourself in the typical festivities of the town, you can come and visit the Magosto Festival. On November 11, the day of St. Martin of Tours, we have an appointment.

Parking your rental car in Ourense

From Furauto we recommend you to park your vehicle in one of the public or private parking lots that we show you in the following link (http://www.parkopedia.es/parking/ourense_spain/?ac=1&country=ES&lat=42.33578929999999&lng=-7.863880999999992). Note that in Ourense there are many regulated parking areas. If you wish to park on the street, you should avoid all of these areas if you do not want to have to return every so often to renew your ticket.
