Spain - What are Paradores

How different are the Paradores from hotels, or is it just the Spanish name for hotel. If they are different from "normal" hotel, is it worth staying. Price is not a major consideration in this respect.

Thanks in advance for any information given.

you can write a tourist office in Spain and they will sent you a list, and hopefully one will be on your route.
Mine were not. They are really as the previous poster said, beautiful old, sometimes, castle like ancient buildings, some more elaborat than another.
