Well I don’t quite understand why this parador (state-run luxury hotel) is only three stars, in what hotel of this category do they take your bags up to your room, make your bed mid-afternoon if you rest after lunch, and treat you with such absolute delicacy!
I get a special thrill when I stay in these types of buildings that the parador chain is so unique in offering. It is not the same staying in a new building with minimalist decor and impersonal service (the most common), than to stay in a fifteenth century castle-palace that from Carlos III, to our current royals have passed through, as well as countless famous people where affable and polite treatment is the norm.
This castle-palace is French in style, worthy of being on the banks of the Loire, an unusual architecture in the peninsula. This is due to the tastes of Dona Leonor, wife of Charles III who was of French origin; it seems like a fairy-tale building.
Her son, the Prince of Viana (where the Parador gets its name from) came to incorporate a small zoo next to the hanging gardens in the interior courtyards established by his father.
In the oldest part of the building complex is the reception and a few rooms (they say along with ghosts), the rest of them being in a modern annexe.
The decor is classic and the back rooms have lovely viewpoints from which the panoramas are beautiful and the tranquillity absolute.
Do not fail to look at the accompanying photos of the evening storm I enjoyed from them. Needless to say that breakfast with fresh juices, typical products and other foods is unparalleled.
Anyway, a ten for this site nestled in a beautiful plaza in the centre of this charming and historic place. This really is a spot to lose oneself.
