Balneario de Mondariz
The stone walls of the Great Hotel, which opened in 1898 and later served as a military hospital during the Spanish Civil War, were preserved after a fire destroyed the building in 1973. A path from the village leads past the ruins to the former Gran Hotel (see below), and today's Meliá Balneario Mondariz Hotel.
The former Gran Hotel is across the street from the Meliá Balneario Mondariz Hotel, next to the Fuente de Gandará and facing a public park. It has been converted into 188 vacation apartments.
A bronze dignitary occupies a park bench in front of El Gran Hotel.
Glass canopies add an elegant touch to the façade of the Balneario de Mondariz Hotel, which incorporates several buildings (including the old Mondariz water-bottling plant).
The hotel's guest wings have several quiet, comfortable lounges for reading or relaxing.
This view from a guest wing shows other buildings and the Palace of Water across the street.
