Parador de Siguenza King Alfonso XIII was the first to suggest that buildings of national heritage, that had been abandoned or needed restoration, be converted into luxury hotels. The first was inaugurated at Gredos in 1923. The initiative has continued and today there are almost 100 paradores throughout Spain.

Old palaces, convents, monastries and medieval castles have been brought back to life with tapestries, carpets, tiles and paintings restored. Facilities which include swimming pools, tennis courts and conference rooms have been added. In some places with outstanding views but lacking an old castle to restore, new buildings have been erected. The hotels have a commitment to environmental protection in undertaking restoration projects, thereby helping to maintain both the natural and cultural heritage of Spain.

Each Parador is unique, but there is a continuity of quality, cuisine and service as you travel from one to another. The restaurants serve traditional dishes, typical desserts and local wines, as well as excellent quality international menus. Paradors are such special places to stay that they inspire a loyalty among a large, international group of people would never think of staying anywhere else while in Spain.

We feature the parador of Nerja in the district of Axarquía and others in nearby areas that a holiday maker or resident might want to visit.

On a final note, Paradores usually offer very good discounts to anyone over 60 years as well as to the younger age group between 20 and 30 years.
