14TH CENTURY PALACE
The former Torreorgaz Palace, built on Arabic foundations, has a door with a lintel and a Baroque coat of arms, is located in the heart of the historical and artistic quarter of Cáceres, a town declared a World Heritage Site. Founded by Diego García de Ulloa, knight of the Order of Santiago, the Parador, a 14th c. construction, is presided over by its slender tower. The styles personalized in the building and its monumental surroundings, are Gothic, Renaissance and baroque.
The inner courtyard and cobblestone, frames, beams
covered with wood and the original mantelpiece in the living room make up the
interior decoration. In this context the soft cream shades of the bedrooms are
defined by good taste, spaciousness and comfort. Iberian sirloin steak with
Casar cheese and roast kid with rosemary are representative of the varied
cuisine of Extremadura. The hotel also has a wine-cellar featuring more than 300
varieties of Spanish wine.

HOW TO GET THERE:
The historic old quarter of Cáceres adds to the virtues of the Parador, wich has the only vehicle access in this lovely monumental setting. Located on Ancha Street, take Santa Clara as your point of reference. If you come by car, you will find bollards in the square wich restrict access to the Parador. To continue, you must contact the local police using the intercom at the traffic light. Indicate that you have reservations at the Parador and the bollards will be lowered. If there is another vehicle in front of you which has also requested access, never follow directly behind it. Wait for the bollards to rise and use the intercom to request access for your vehicle.
