We arrived just after 15h and were not disappointed with the Parador as the décor fits in beautifully with the style of the town and our room was very cosy. Being the middle of the week the place was quite empty and the only other people staying there were retired couples as well as a middle aged German couple of men.

Paradors in Spain are very popular with visitors from Europe and the clientele we found there this week is just the sort of clientele that is most attracted to these establishments. We didn’t mind, although I must admit I was probably the youngest guest there! Lunch was good, just as we expected and the dining room magnificent. It was where the monks would have had their lunch and the pulpit for reading during their silent meals is still in place.
