This was the last parador of our trip; I believe we stayed in seven of them. It wasn't one of my favorites, but I did like it. The general ambiance was really nice; apparently I enjoy feeling like a local magistrate of old. The drive up the winding, narrow streets was slightly nerve-racking; my husband, the driver, was never worried... More

I totally endorse Sambracitan after reading Vincent B we were very disappointed we had chosen this as one of our Paradors infact our first so it was with trepidation we drove to it.Point to make is that the Parador should be signed from the outskirts of the village our friends came along later and they had difficulty finding there way,once...

After reading the review by Vincent B, I was not looking forward to this Parador. Silly really, it was very good. The approach is a little difficult but my car fitted through the arched entry to the square quite easily. Then it started. Great reception, very friendly and very helpful. Dining room staff were excellent. Location, at the top of... More

We stayed here last week and loved it. Yes the drive up was hairy, and car parking can be a challenge, but for us it was worth it. We found all of the staff friendly and very helpful. They offered to carry our bags to and from the car and helped us carry our bags to our room. We could... More

We spent a night at the Parador and found it very unique. The room is furnished with authentic old furniture and the bath is modern. A great combination. But what is amazing is the balcony. We had a room with balcony facing the valley. Our balcony was literally built on the cliff and the views were spectacular. I think you... More

We were amazed to see how anyone could like this place. Horrible to get to by car-2" clearance-one way-hills. Impossible to access from East-GPS failed. Have to drive completely around town and access from other side. Small parking lot. Lucked into space but could not move car because never get another.5 Euros a day and you have to get a... More

We had a high expectation of a Parador located on top of the hill. We knew it was an older place. Upon arrival the hotel offered what we hoped for. It has real charm and it is a bit outdated. And it needs some renovation. Staying for 2 nights, our first impression was positive. Although when looking at it in... More

We have stayed in a number of these in Spain. We find this place "the best of the best". All these are nice but we loved this one. Food, drink, views....this one has it all. The drive up is a little hairy but once you get there you will love it.

Parador is situated just in a medival town . Building is so classocal that corridor and each rooms are keeping the old-style .bathroom is also classical and good feeling. We can see beautiful view from terrace of parador,it is very good to drink a coffee with beautiful church and white houses.

This place is unique, interesting, and located perfectly. The cliff view rooms have fantastic views, as they are located above the huge cliff overseeing the lower city and country landscapes. Worth the price. Parking is very difficult due to cetral historic location on the top of the hill. Parking is easy at lower city, but hike up is tough for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The cultural crossbreeding of the Casa del Corregidor displays an andalusian character, with latticework and a courtyard. Many of the rooms overlook a splendid landscape filled with art, nature and history. The flowery tiling enlivers the wood of the furniture and the ochre of the terraces. ... more   less
