On first arriving, the hotel building took our breath away. The hotel stands alone looking over Alcantara surrounded by fields. As we left the car, the sound of sheep bells could be heard in the distance. After being used as a convent, the building was a factory grinding different types of flour and some of the old machinery is still in place. Rooms are comfortable and cosy with the usual Hospederia standard of finish. The restaurant was stunning and the food of good standard. There are many beautiful buildings to see in the town, as well as the famous Roman bridge.
