El Castell de Ciutat

Ctra. de Lleida (N260), Km 229, La Seu d'Urgell, Catalonia, 25700, Spain

Just outside town, the setting of this wood-and-slate structure beneath La Seu's castle makes it one of the finest places to stay in the Pyrenees—rooms on the second floor have balconies overlooking the river and surrounding valley, those on the third have slanted ceilings and dormer windows, and suites include a salon. The restaurant here, Tapies, specializes in mountain cuisine, particularly Pyrenean bolets (mushrooms) and caza (game) from the Cerdanya Valley. Reserve well in advance during summer or Easter week.

PROS

  • best restaurant for many miles
  • magnificent Pyrenean panoramas

CONS

  • standard upper-floor rooms feel slightly cramped
  • right next to a busy highway
  • misses out on the feel of the town
