PARADORES

Parador de Benavente

Ref. PAR 42

Parador de Benavente - The seat of parliament in 1202, this Renaissance style castle was built by order of Fernando II de León and forms part of the former walled enclosure of the town. Practically razed to the ground in 1808 during the Peninsular War, it conserves the monumental Torre del Caracol, where there is a living room with an admirable Mudejar coffered ceiling. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the interior contains classical decorative elements such as rugs, forged lamps, coffered ceilings, wood and Castilian bricks. Its spectacular living rooms are duly equipped to promote their functional value as spaces for social gatherings. The dreamy bedrooms are comfortable, and the restaurant offers the region's gastronomic array: 'arroz a la zamorana' (Zamora-style rice), 'dos y pingada' (fried dish) and the sweet 'rebojo zamorano'.
