The Hotel "Duque de Feria" in Zafra occupies a majestic castle which was begun in 1437 as the residence of the Dukes of Feria, one of Spain’s great families.  The spectacular façade expresses the importance of this castle-palace, which is the ideal base for exploring the architectural heritage and the natural beauties of the area.  Nine towers with battlements stand guard over a regal, grandiose interior which conserves beautiful coffered ceilings, trunks, ironwork, balustrades and other decorative details from the former palace.  The bedrooms, which still have their ducal coffered ceilings and decorative details, are lordly, elegant and spacious. The swimming pool and well-tended garden are also worth a mention. The best local dishes are offered in the dining room of the Parador de Zafra, such as caldereta de cordero (lamb stew), migas extremeñas (breadcrumbs), bacalao monacal (cod), zorongollo (tomato salad), cheesecake from La Serena, Iberian pork loin with Ibores cheese, and, of course, ham.
