Historic Paradors in Andalucia
These Paradors are located in the city or countryside and were constructed as modern contemporary paradors as opposed to historic buildings. They are ideal for a family holiday and all have outdoor swimming pools open in the summer. All have ample grounds and easy access and parking facilities.
Listed below are all historic paradors in Andalucia.
This facility opens the historic 'Casa del Corregidor' Palace to the public and is located on the banks of the Guadalete River.
The Granada Parador, Parador de San Francisco, has an enviable setting: it is located inside the Alhambra. Formerly a monastery, this beautiful, historic building with heavy studded wooden doors, leafy patios and arcaded courtyards is an ideal base for exploring the celebrated fortress, and is the closest hotel to the main attraction of the Alhambra.
The Parador in Úbeda makes yet another gorgeous historical gem open to the public. This time you can stay in a 17th century renaissance palace right in the heart of the historic monumental city of Úbeda.
Jaen Parador has a spectacular setting: it is in the restored Santa Catalina castle high on a hill overlooking the ancient city of Jaen, and the countryside and mountains beyond. A favourite for those travelling north to or from Andalucia.
There is no better way to see Málaga than from the Gibralfaro Castle Parador. Built on a hilltop, next to the Gibralfaro fortress and overlooking the city, the port and especially the bullring, this Parador is a lovely place to stay and a very special place to enjoy a meal. Both the dining room and the cafe bar attract locals for family and business meals.
The Ronda Parador is an interesting mix of old and new architecture with views of the busy and picturesque Plaza de España on one side and the breathtaking gorge on the other, as well as the 18th century Puente Nuevo bridge. This is an excellent, convenient base for exploring Ronda.
The Parador in Carmona occupies a 14th century Moorish fortress. Staying here is one of the best ways to get an intimate glimpse of Arab style architecture – the building is beautiful and the views are stunning. It provides a comfortable – if not exotic – base to explore Seville Province with rooms that provide ample space and light.
