Paradores Spain, a very good option.
Paradores Spain

Paradores Spain is an experience out of the ordinary.

If you have not done it yet, I recommend you do it at the first opportunity you have.

The invention of this hotel chain is a genius idea that makes the whole of Spain a much more attractive offer.

The first Parador dates from 1928 and I think it’s in Navarredonda de Gredos (Avila), a heavenly place 70 miles from Madrid. It was inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII.

The Paradores Nacionales were thought to attend to the needs and wishes of the Spanish tourists who want to move around Spain knowing that in all the Paradores the service will be similar.

That is usually in buildings with such an incredible history that invites not to leave to see what is around the Parador for the quality of the services and the impressiveness of the building in which they are framed. Some of them are old castles built some centuries ago.

Experience Spain like a local.

We live a very special moment in international tourism and one of the things that foreigners look for is to live experiences as if they were local.

That is what the Paradores Nacionales give. Only to live experiences as locals one can decide to come to make camping in our country, and of course one can live the experience as a local.

Sleeping in the Paradores also means living the experience of the locals but obtaining it in a radically different way from that of the campsite.

For that reason, it is a very good alternative for that foreigner who has come to Spain on other occasions, who by chance has found one of those wonders that we call Paradores and has been captivated by what they offer.

This network of hotels, some 100 throughout Spain are the result of a great idea of ​​someone who thought that Spain had an extraordinary cultural heritage and that one of the smartest ways of preserving it was to make many historic buildings.(some are castles of many centuries ago )

Sometimes a Parador can also be a modern building.

The spirit of Indiana Jones while you travel.

The Paradores are designed for those who have had the spirit of Indiana Jones in the past continue to have it as they are getting older, and getting a higher purchasing power and intend to play a little safe without losing that Indiana Jones spirit I was talking about.

If you were a foreigner and visited this country several times, you would be using it frequently.

Spanish Paradores have a great value for money and one, having visited one of their hotels, can estimate with a certain precision the service they can receive in other establishments of the chain.

The service in all its establishments can be very similar.

If you visit one of them I recommend that you ask for a booklet in which all the Paradores that are in the country appear. That booklet shows some information about what is visitable in the area and the specific of that Parador in particular.
