Parador de León

Pl. de San Marcos 7, León, Castille and León, 24001, Spain

This magnificent parador occupies a restored 16th-century monastery and hospital built by King Ferdinand to shelter pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago. Its plateresque facade also fronts a church and museum of archaeology. The suites and luxury rooms in the original section are worth the extra cost—the 175 rooms in the modern wing are fine but standard. Hallways and guest rooms have antiques and high-quality reproductions paired with contemporary art. The elegant dining room offers regional fare.

PROS

  • among the most beautiful paradores in Spain
  • great restaurant

CONS

  • a big difference between the most and the least expensive rooms (this is the place to splurge for the good ones)
