Parador de Salamanca ****
C/ Teso de la Feria, 2
37008 - Salamanca
Spain

WITH VIEWS OF THE MONUMENTAL QUARTER

This Parador rises up on the left bank of the river Tormes, on a hillock opposite the monumental centre of the city. Its large windows become an exceptional viewpoint of the city, an open-air museum, in which the towers of the cathedral stand out. Elegance, comfort and spaciousness are three of the traits which characterize the common rooms, the meeting rooms and the bedrooms. Decorated with good taste thanks to the presence of marble and other luxury materials, the interior offers unsurpassable panoramic views which can be contemplated from all the living rooms, the swimming pool or from the majority of the bedrooms. The dining room offers local dishes, such as 'hornazo' (bread filled with meat), 'farinato', Iberian sausages, Hinojosa cheese, 'tostón' (roast suckling pig), 'rosquillas de Ledesma' (a type of doughnut) and 'almendrados' (macaroons).
