18TH CENTURY CONVENT

The Parador conserves the structure of the former 18th c. convent, installed on the remains of a temple dedicated to the Concordia de Augusto, and offers the guest the opportunity to experience the rich heritage of the beautiful town of Mérida and surrounding natural areas.
Some of the most noteworthy spaces are the living room, the inner patio and the beautiful gardens where the 'Jardín de Antiguedades' (Garden of Antiquities) is located.


The garden is an archeological ensemble made up of Roman, Mudejar and Visigothic elements. The numerous gastronomic suggestions offered by the restaurant include 'criadillas de la Tierra' (truffles), 'caldereta extremeña' (stew), the assortment of 'gazpachos' (cold soup), and Almoharín figs.
