About the O Muiño de Pena:

O Muiño Pena is located in a beautiful natural setting on the banks of the river Mera.
An old mill and sawmill full of history, tradition and culture, nowadays houses also an ethnographic museum.

O Muiño Pena is carefully looked after, designed to enjoy the peacefulness and to recover the traditional memories and customs. It consists of a basement, the ground floor and upstairs. The ethnographic and cultural museum, two double rooms, dining room, traditional lareira (stove), restored bread oven, traditional sink and two bathrooms are located in the basement.

There is a library-lounge with digital TV/Internet/Fax, a view to the mills, and five double rooms, a specially fitted for disabled in the ground floor. There is also a porch outside. The house has been decorated in traditional Galician style to the smallest detail: cupboards, cup racks, pantries, wrought iron lamps, linen curtains etc. As well as a selection of supplements that continues the same line

Guest Rooms

Special efforts have been taken to supply the house with large, pleasant communal areas where guests can get together, talk and relax.

O Muíño de Pena has seven guestrooms, all equipped with bathroom, television and Internet connection. Four are double rooms while the other three have single beds. One bedroom is able to accommodate disabled people, for it is larger and the beds are ergonomic with an electric motor.

The rooms stand out for the conscientious way they have been decorated, respecting the traditional quirks of the house. The delicate sheets on the bed and the curtains have been hand-sewn and embroidered by the family themselves. The iron headboards and the wall lamp fastenings, as well as the majority of the ironwork on the doors and windows, have been forged by hand by the owner’s uncle, a blacksmith.

Each room and bathroom has its own personality, but the presence of fine woods, iron and stone is the common feature in all. At all times the aim was to create a harmonious, comfortable atmosphere which blends modern comforts with the desire to preserve the spirit of the traditional buildings.
