Parador de Olite ***
Pza. Teobaldos
2.31390 - Olite (Navarra)
Spain

Navarra Province

The Parador occupies one of the wings of the majestic 15th C. palace-castle, declared a National Monument, on which the towers and battlements stand out. In keeping with its medieval setting, it rises up on solid stone walls and offers a glimpse of the numerous historical adventures it lived through in other times, such as the holding of parliament under the government of the Noble King.

The medieval spirit is maintained on the inside, with very beautiful stained glass windows on the staircase and in the dining room, arcades and ornamental details such as armour, rugs, wrought iron lamps and wooden coffered ceilings. The restaurant offers an excellent display of local products: the fresh asparagus and 'piquillo' peppers stand out.
