Welcome to our personal guide to this chain of up market hotels located throughout Spain called Paradores. 

“Sleep and dine in Arab Fortresses, Convents, Medieval Castles, Royal Palaces, Monasteries and Ancestral Houses; all singular buildings from yesterday.” 

Whatever the style of the hotel they are all historic and this is the reason for them being included in this guide. It is important to understand that many Paradores are modern and often located by the coast, these are not part of this guide. Instead we look in depth at the historic Paradores and inform you the tourist of the best with details of their location and further places of interest. Experience the real Spain by lodging in the historic buildings, eating traditional Spanish food and tasting the many varied local wines from Cava to Rioja. 

We also give you a touch of Spanish history as the Paradores are also designed to preserve the heritage of Spain.,so we have taken the opportunity of briefly exploring Spanish history as it relates to each Parador. We travel from the Spanish Inquisition in one of the many church buildings, to invasion and battles in the castles, through to the wine regions and the Conquistadors, noting the famous names in Spanish history; Don Juan, El Cid, Ferdinand and Isabella, Herman Cortes, Don Quixote and others making history come alive in these amazing hotel settings. 
This guide will give you all you need to plan your trip and the inspiration to just do it!
