Fodor's Expert Review Parador de Alarcón
Av. Amigos de los Castillos 3, Alarcón, Castille-La Mancha, 16213, Spain Fodor's Choice
The highly romantic rooms in this 8th- to 12th-century gorge-top castle are in a fairy-tale setting—a fortress of Moorish origin decorated in a military motif. The turret room is the best and biggest; the rooms in the corner towers have arrow-slit windows, and others have window niches where women used to do needlework. Dinner is served in an arched baronial hall complete with shields, armor, and a gigantic fireplace.
- worth the high price
- ambience to spare
- good for a romantic getaway
- after 11 pm, room service prices jump 25%
