The captivating village of Guadalupe is located in the district of Las Villuercas in Cáceres. Dominated by a beautiful farmhouse, lined with cobbled streets flanked by houses of traditional architecture, the historic complex, built between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, retains its original structure.
On the Plaza de Santa María square, the Royal Monastery of Guadalupe gives life to the Parador. The elegant monastic rooms, the splendid garden and the refreshing waters of its magnificent swimming pool serve as an invitation to enjoyment.
LAND OF TEMPLARS AND DOMINIONS
You can access the charming El Clavel Street through the Puerta de Jerez Gate in the medieval wall of Zafra.
Framed by a pointed arch and decorated with tiles, the street overlooks small and flowery balconies that live up to its name (Clavel means Carnation).
Majestically standing on a 15th-century castle, we can find the Palace of the Dukes of Feria. Among its stately walls lies the Parador de Zafra.
Nothing like enjoying an invigorating dip in the spacious pool before enjoying the exquisite cuisine of the area.
INTERVIEW WITH HISTORY
The old manor house of the Álvarez de Toledo, Counts of Oropesa, the Parador de Oropesa, has acted as an immovable witness of the passing of the centuries through this affable medieval village.
It became the first Monument Parador of the public chain in 1930. After a leisurely stroll through the streets, dotted with churches, convents and palaces, you can enjoy a dip with views onto the Sierra de Gredos mountain range.
CRADLE OF DISCOVERERS
The bronze look of Francisco Pizarro, the discoverer, watches over the Main Square of Trujillo next to the Church of San Martín de Tours.
Following one’s discovery of the beauty of the Palace of the Conquest and the House of Chains or the Castle, the fresh waters in the pool of the peaceful Parador invite you to relaxation and calm. Located in the sixteenth century convent of Santa Clara, it preserves the tranquillity of its two convent cloisters and elegant rooms.
WALK THROUGH GALLERIES WITH ARCADES
Chinchón is a peculiar small village. It is famous for its supported Main Square, surrounded by 230 picturesque wooden balconies, its ancestral homes, courtyards and monumental buildings such as the Clock Tower or the Casa de la Cadena. Among the walls of an old Augustinian con-vent is the Parador.
The large windows flood the rooms with light; peace floats in the sweet air of the inner courtyards and, when it starts to get hot, the refreshing waters of the pool, built in the old stables, relieve both mind and body.
Jarandilla de la Vera is an ideal place for nature lovers thanks to wonderful enclaves such as the Garganta de Jaranda gorge and villages such as Garganta de la Olla.
After a long day among the water gorges and chestnut and oak forests, we have the quiet rest of the Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera.
In this castle-palace that hosted Emperor Charles V you can enjoy the spectacular views and the freshness of its excellent pool.
PRIVILEGED SPOT OF THE RIBEIRA SACRA
Monforte de Lemos is an ideal point for one to become familiar with the exuberant beauty of the Ribeira Sacra, with its rivers, vineyards, Romanesque churches, festivities and gastronomic richness. One’s acquaintance with the village, enveloped in an indescribable location, is not complete without a visit to the College of the Piarists.
The Monastery of San Vicente do Pino and the Palace of the Counts of Lemos house the Parador, whose seasonal swimming pool invites you to forget the daily hustle and bustle while its neoclassical cloister becomes a perfect place for resting.
