Description

The magnificent Parador de Alcala is set in a 17th-century monastery school and student lodgings located in the former San Jeronimo College.  Alcala de Henares is a World Heritage town and is the birthplace of the writer Miguel Angel Cervantes, whose work `Don Quixote´ is recognized worldwide. Every inch of Alcala is full of art and culture.

This Parador hotel offers the perfect combination of tradition and avant-garde. The interior décor while modern is tasteful, minimalist and extremely elegant.   Facilities include a spa, a seasonal outdoor pool and a stylish restaurant serving traditional Spanish cuisine.  The charming terrace is found in the cloister of the 16th-century Saint Thomas of Aquino Convent and here one can enjoy relaxing with a drink or in the hotel’s bar.

Strolling along the cobbled streets of the old quarter of Alcala de Henares, you will discover the charming traces left over centuries on this university city.  A quintessential literary capital, Alcala not only is the birthplace of Cervantes but was once home to Francisco Quevedo, Lope de Vega, Calderon de la Barca, Tirso de Molina and St. John of the Cross, among other geniuses of the Spanish Renaissance.

Alcala´s main attractions include the Calle Mayor, the cathedral, the university and the Archbishop's Palace. Also the Paraninfo Theater, where the Cervantes Prize for Literature is presented.  One musn’t forget too the many historic towers which annually host visiting storks, now a permanent feature of the landscape of Alcala.
