Parador de Mérida

Pl. de la Constitución and Calle Almendralejo 56, Mérida, Extremadura, 06800, Spain

This spacious hotel exudes an Andalusian cheerfulness, with hints at its Roman and Moorish past—it was built over the remains of a Roman temple, later became a Baroque convent, and then served as a prison. The whitewashed building has bright guest rooms with traditional dark wood furniture, and the brilliant-white interior of the convent's former church has been turned into a restful lounge. Try the restaurant's revuelto prepared in myriad ways, including con aroma de pimentón (in paprika sauce) and with cabrito al ajillo (suckling goat fried with garlic).
