Ourense originated as a city of gold and water. That was how it was known by the Romans, founders of the early settlement, which they called Aquae Aurente, giving rise to the current name, Ourense. Ourense is also place of crossroads, where the River Miño defines landscape of a city that lies between coastal Galicia and inland Spain and has always sought to look outwards.

Ourense's old quarter is one of the largest of Galicia's cities and has recently benefited from an extensive programme to refurbish zones and buildings. The city's life unfolds in its older, monumental district, with barely a transition from its more modern areas. Possibly the busiest old quarter in Galicia, its key sights are the As Burgas hot springs, the Cathedral, the Plazas Maior, do Trigo, la Alameda do  Concejo and do Ferro; and the Posío Gardens.
