The Paradors of Spain

Living Like Royalty at a Reasonable Price

A parador in Spain.
A monastery in Spain also is home to a parador.

Castles ( castillos), fortresses (alcazárs), and monasteries remain abundant in Spain. Most are crumbling ruins, but if you want to experience the aura, there are still some great opportunities in the form of Spanish castle inns (paradores). Most visitors are other Europeans.

In addition to being enjoyed for themselves, paradores can also be great home bases for day trips to surrounding towns and attractions, especially if you are visiting Spain with a car rental, which provides much flexibility and so many options for the discovery of beautiful small medieval towns and off-the-beaten-track countryside.

Prices range anywhere from $100 to $250, and offer breakfast to full board. Special promotions make them even more affordable. (Some paradores add surcharges and others participate only during certain seasons.) Many paradores offer restaurants, wine tours, spas, and other amenities.

All information to choose among suggested routes, make your reservations online, and browse the many excellent options by region, is on the Paradors of Spain website.
