Parador de Ferrol ***
C/ Almirante Fernandez Martin, s/n

Spain

STATELY MANSION WITH A MARITIME AIR

In the centre of Ferrol, an attractive, seafaring city, the Parador rises up, recreating in its image the essence of a Galician mansion with glazed galleries and a singular marine setting. The decoration displays nautical elements, world maps and navigational instruments in the common rooms and spaces. The main staircase has an ancient lamp from a boat and the maritime motifs abound in the living rooms.

The bedrooms are spacious and boast ochre and dark shades; some, with viewpoints and balconies, are favoured by magnificent views over the port. The restaurant offers a wide and varied display of exquisite Galician cooking. Its most representative dishes are 'pulpo a la mugardesa' (octopus with potatoes), 'rape a la coruñesa' (Coruña style monkfish) and 'sopa ferrolana' (seafood soup). The typical cake from Ferrol justly heads the dessert menu.
