Parador de Ciudad Rodrigo

Description

Dramatically situated on a rocky rise above the River Águeda, this ivy-clad medieval castle once guarded the main road between Salamanca and Portugal. The castle as it now stands was constructed in the 14th century. The Parador is dominated by an imposing two-tier castellated tower, and is surrounded by a well-tended garden. The interior maintains a historic atmosphere, with a fine courtyard and much Castilian furniture. In the restaurant – which features fine old stone arches – a range of dishes from the Salamanca region are on offer.
