Fodor's Expert Review Parador de Vilalba

C. Valeriano Valdesuso s/n, Vilalba, Galicia, 27800, Spain

Part of the inn is in a massive 15th-century tower that was once a fortress; a drawbridge leads to the two-story lobby, hung with tapestries. The three large octagonal chambers in the tower have beamed ceilings, wood floors, hand-carved Spanish furniture, and chandeliers. The restaurant menu includes caldo gallego and empanada de zorza y queso (with paprika pork and cheese); for dessert, order the stuffed filloas (crepes).

PROS

  • the historic tower
  • elegant guest rooms
  • spa facilities

CONS

  • the uninspiring new building across the drawbridge
  • noise of the church bells
  • pricey breakfast
