14TH CENTURY PALACE

The former Torreorgaz Palace, built on Arabic foundations, has a door with a lintel and a Baroque coat of arms, is located in the heart of the historical and artistic quarter of Cáceres, a town declared a World Heritage Site. Founded by Diego García de Ulloa, knight of the Order of Santiago, the Parador, a 14th c. construction, is presided over by its slender tower. The styles personalized in the building and its monumental surroundings, are Gothic, Renaissance and baroque. The inner courtyard and cobblestone, frames, beams covered with wood and the original mantelpiece in the living room make up the interior decoration. In this context the soft cream shades of the bedrooms are defined by good taste, spaciousness and comfort. Iberian sirloin steak with Casar cheese and roast kid with rosemary are representative of the varied cuisine of Extremadura. The hotel also has a wine-cellar featuring more than 300 varieties of Spanish wine.
