Paradores by Region:
Barcelona - Cardona
Exterior Views Parador de Cardona - Barcelona Province
The Parador is located on a headland, in a fortified 9th c. enclosure in which there is also the 2nd c. Minyona tower and an 11th c. church, representative elements of the Catalan Romanesque of its surroundings. Its location offers an exceptional panoramic view of the town and of the fertile lands bathed by the river Cardoner. Some bedrooms have the charm of four poster beds. Moats, towers, walls and Gothic elements combine with a decoration in which comfort and Catalan-inspired medieval furniture predominate. In the dining room, Catalan cuisine offers assortments of forest mushrooms and a variety of sausages, not forgetting 'butifarra con mongetes' (sausage with haricot beans).
Barcelona - Vic
Exterior Views Parador de Vic-Sau, Vic, Barcelona Province
The Parador is located in one of the most beautiful spots of the region of Osona, with the Guillerías mountains in the background and the Sau reservoir at its feet. The tranquillity of the setting favours outdoor and adventure sports, and the visiting of ancient Romanesque churches. This is the Parador closest to Barcelona (82 km by dual carriageway); visits can be made to this cosmopolitan city and back in a very short time. The hotel recovers the traditional air of the Catalan farmhouse and its well looked-after garden, bedrooms with terraces and a magnificent swimming pool, with exceptional views of the setting, are added values, like the spaciousness and comfort of the interior rooms.
Tarragona - Tortosa
Exterior Views Parador de Tortosa, Tarragona - Tortosa
In the middle of the fertile plain of the Ebro and backed by the Beceite mountains, which can be superbly viewed from the swimming pool and balconies, the Parador rises up in the upper part of the town, in a setting which combines the monumental beauty of the town with the attractions of the different natural enclaves which surround it. Abderramán III decided to build this fortification, which now houses La Zuda (the well), next to four splendid large Catalan Gothic windows. The decoration of the interior assimilates the predominance of Christian and regal characters with classical style furniture and wooden beams. Within the walls, with Arabic motifs, the dining room is important for its large Gothic windows.
Girona - Begur

Arties - Pyrenees
Parador de Arties
Located in the 'Val dArán', just 7 km from Baqueira, in an area of the Catalan Pyrenees where the woods, the snow-capped peaks in winter and the freshness of the green in summer are the true protagonists of the landscape. The Parador, in the style of the local architecture, rises up in the so-called House of D. Gaspar de Portolá, the discoverer of California. It has attic bedrooms, wood-lined beams and numerous conference rooms, among which the Salón Chimenea stands out. The friendly common rooms invite you to stay the night in an ideal setting for taking up outdoor activities. The cooking is influenced by the specialties of the region such as 'olla aranesa' (stew), trout 'a la llosa', 'civet de jabalí' (jugged wild boar) and the sweet 'pescajus de Artíes'.
