Fodor's Expert Review Parador de Ávila

Marqués de Canales de Chozas 2, Ávila, Castille and León, 05001, Spain

This largely rebuilt 16th-century medieval castle is attached to the massive town walls, and a standout feature is its lush garden containing archaeological ruins. The interior is unusually warm for a parador, done mostly in tawny tones, and guest rooms have terra-cotta tile floors, leather chairs, and four-poster beds.

PROS

  • gorgeous garden and views
  • good restaurant
  • family-friendly rooms and services

CONS

  • long walk into town
  • interiors need a refresh
