Parador de Gijón

Av. Torcuato Fernández Miranda 15, Gijón, Asturias, 33203, Spain

This is one of the simplest and friendliest paradores in Spain, and most of the rooms in the new wing have wonderful views over the lake or the park. This compensates for their small, plain interiors, with wood floors and pine shutters. In the restaurant, try the caldereta de marisco (an aromatic seafood stew made with crab, lobster, and shrimp), chopa a la sidra (sea chub cooked in cider), or tigres (spicy stuffed mussels). The parador is a bit of a hike from the old town, occupying an old water mill in a park not far from the San Lorenzo Beach.
