Parador de Segovia ****
Ctra. de Valladolid, s/n
40003 - Segovia
Spain

Modern, welcoming and surprising, this Parador rises up in one of the most monumental cities of Spain, declared a World Heritage Site. From it can be seen the best panoramic view of Segovia. It is moreover an ideal setting to approach the numerous natural spaces of the province. The bedrooms of the Parador are spacious and comfortable, and enjoy splendid views of the city, as does the dining room and the outdoor swimming pool.

The very spacious lobby displays modern paintings and design elements, in clear contrast to the simple, circular lines which frame the heated swimming pool. The splendid conference centre stands out, with several living rooms and congress rooms, and the dining room, an extensive display of regional products: 'judiones de La Granja' (beans), Castilian soup and roast lamb or suckling pig in a wood-fired oven.

What to eat...


From beans to pork
The 'judiones' (giant beans) of La Granja, the Castilian soup, and the lamb or pork roasted on a fire oven, are the usual options here. You can also request some local advice for other typical Castilian
