This parador has superb views from its hilltop position among the ruins of Pedro the Cruel's summer palace. The public rooms surround a central, Moorish-style patio and include the vaulted dining hall and adjacent bar that open onto an outdoor terrace overlooking the sloping garden. Of the spacious guest rooms—decorated in light grey tones—all but six, which face onto the front courtyard, look south over the valley (the best rooms are on the top floor). The restaurant
claims to be one of the best in the parador group and serves local specialties such as partridge and spicy spinach.
