HOTEL HIGHLIGHT:

PARADOR DE AVILA 4*

former "Piedras Albas" palace
This Parador rises up on the former "Piedras Albas" palace in the historical centre of monumental Ávila, backing onto the majestic city walls. In harmony with its surroundings, the interior conserves a warm, intimate air in a splendidly recovered atmosphere, which enriches all the common rooms. Beautiful decorative elements, granite and abode floors, bright colours and spacious bedrooms, some with four-poster beds, make up a harmonious and bright whole. The garden also stands out, with archaeological remains, as does the magnificent glazed patio, the modular rooms and the cafeteria. In the dining room, which offers beautiful views of the garden and walls, it is possible to sample "pucheretes teresianos" (vegetable and pork stew), roast sucking pig, veal steak, "judías de El Barco" (beans) and the excellent "yemas de la Santa" (a typical dessert).
