Luxury dining within a Spanish monument
Nestled in a valley with spectacular views of the Picos de Europa mountain range and national park, Parador Cangas de Onis’ building is a robust edifice that dates back over thousands of years and was designated as a Spanish National Historic-Artistic Monument in 1907. This exclusive atmosphere is the ideal setting at which to celebrate important occasions or just the pleasures of everyday life with meals in the hotel’s most intimate spots.

Travel back in time by enjoying a romantic dinner by the monastery’s ancient well and spring, a stunning, stone space… Or perhaps you’d prefer lunch by the roaring fire in the calefactory, the communal room once used by medieval monks to warm themselves after long hours of study in the unheated cloister? Another dining option is the San Miguel Chapel which was once the building’s chapter house and offers guests views of San Pedro de Villanueva Church while they eat. Larger groups can reserve the monastery’s library for their culinary celebration, with up to 20 guests comfortably accommodated.
The taste of Asturias
To accompany these singular dining settings, Parador Cangas de Onís offers a special menu featuring the best of regional food and wine.

Later, have the platter of Asturian cheese and desserts of classic rice pudding, Vidiago cheesecake or three-chocolate ingots.
