Castle Hotels in Andalucia
Castle hotels are old castles which have been reconstructed and converted into hotels. Clearly, the impressive and well-preserved architecture of the castles, and their rich history, make these hotels unusual and special places to stay.
Rooms are usually large, with high ceilings and stone floors and even walls. They are most likely to be listed buildings. A must-see for culture and history enthusiasts, as well as children who enjoy tales of knights and battles. Many of the castle hotels in Andalucia are Paradors.
