Arcos Parador

 

 

Awake to the sound of the morning church bells ringing right in the center of Arcos de la Frontera. Once a palace, the “Casa del Corregidor” Parador Hotel is located in a three-sided plaza along with the Ducal Castle and the Santa María church.

While on one side the cosy Parador rooms look out over the orange trees that fill this square, on the other side guests enjoy sweeping views from the cliffs that drop dramatically to the Guadalete River bed (usually dry).

 

You have an excellent restaurant on site at the Parador. Be sure to try the Salmorejo soup that attracts attention from far beyond the province’s borders. Salmorejo is a hearty local version of the cold “gazpacho” eaten elsewhere.

The Casa del Corregidor’s own coffee shop is a wonderful place to stop for a drink and snack even if you aren’t actually staying in the hotel. The views look out to the San Pedro church, which, according to local legend has a group of fans that feel a bit of rivalry with those who attend the Santa María church across the plaza.

If you stay in this Parador, it’s best not to attempt to maneouver the narrow, winding streets of this charming town. Instead, drop your luggage off in the square and ask the hotel staff to point you in the best direction to park your vehicle without entering the city centre.

Arcos de la Frontera provides an excellent base from which to explore the famous White Pueblos Route (Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos) or any of the numerous nature reserves throughout the province of Cádiz. The Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park and Arcos Lake are the nearest of these natural wonders. The Arcos Lake is actually a reservoir (embalse) and part of it is a protected natural area called “La Cola del Embalse de Arcos”.
