The magnificent 4 star Parador de Plasencia is the former Convent of Santo Domingo, founded by the Zuniga family in the middle of the 15th century. Situated in the monumental Plaza de San Vicente Ferrer adjacent to the palace of the Marques de Mirabel, it is built in gothic style and is without doubt one of the most splendid hotels in the Parador chain.
The hotel´s historical interior consists of a 15th century Renaissance cloister and the original sacristy adorned with Talavera tilework.
With its marvellous location at the very heart of the historical quarter of Plasencia, it is the ideal point from which to discover the architectural delights of this unique city, as well as the marvellous surrounding country side.
The hotel features 68 ensuite rooms the majority of which have a small sitting room. All rooms have a/c and central heating, safe, satellite TV and direct dial phone.
The hotel´s restaurant serves a selection of local dishes including "Sopa de Patatas" which is a potato based soup; "Pucherete de perdiz" being a stew of partridge meat; "Lomitos de cordero", honey roast lamb with potatoes and vegetables; "Compota de higos de La Vera" which are local figs stewed in syrup.
