10TH CENTURY CASTLE ON THE BIDASOA ESTUARY

Founded by the Navarrese king Sancho Abarca in the 10th c., this Parador rises up in a beautiful castle which maintains the structure of a medieval fortress in a monumental, coastal setting. Its defensive appearance, with thick walls, conceals an interior recovered with mastery.

The immense, naked stone of the courtyard stands out, as do the beautiful views of the French coast and the sea, which the guest can contemplate from the splendid terrace or from some bedrooms. Beautiful nooks and crannies, spaces adorned with arches, wrought iron and coffered ceilings envelop the traveller in an atmosphere of indescribable beauty. Lances, cannons and armour make up the interior decoration, offering an air of elegance in a most comfortable atmosphere.

What to eat...

The Parador does not have a restaurant, but there are many excellent places to eat nearby. Remember to ask at the Parador. We will be happy to make a recommendation ...

- A buffet breakfast is served to registered guests.
