Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera

Avda. García Prieto, 1 10450 Jarandilla de la Vera Cáceres
+34 927560117
Director: Natalia Martínez Adanez

The Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera has watched the centuries pass from its location in the heart of the fertile region of La Vera and the Tiétar River, amidst river gorges, natural pools, woods of chestnuts and oaks, and natural landscapes that affirm the wealth of its historic and monumental surroundings. This castle/palace once hosted Emperor Charles V for a period of several months. The hotel's noteworthy exterior features include the fortified towers, parade ground and excellent swimming pool, surrounded by olive and orange trees. Inside, the atmosphere is tranquil and private, making it the ideal choice for a very special stay. And in the restaurant, migas extremeñas (Extremadura-style fried breadcrumbs), patatas revolconas (paprika mashed potatoes with bacon), tomato soup, fried suckling pig, braised kid goat and repápalos (deep-fried breadcrumb balls) with milk and cinnamon, will entice your palate.

Jarandilla is one of those charming towns that only grow more beautiful with time. Examples of non-ecclesiastical architecture include the house of Don Luis de Quijada and a number of medieval bridges. There are also many religious buildings, including San Francisco Monastery and Ntra. Sra. de la Torre Church.

And you are sure to love the festival known as Los Escobazos, which is held on December 7 each year. At the high point of the festivities, the Virgin's standard is carried through Jarandilla by a rider on horseback accompanied by a number of other riders, and the entire town takes to the streets with burning brooms.

If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy visiting wonderful nearby spots such as the Jaranda Gorge and neighboring towns such as Garganta la Olla. You can hike through gorgeous sections of Extremadura, where the peace and tranquility of nature reign supreme.

Grand New Year & Reyes holiday. Great to sit and read in the same rooms where Emperor Charles V spent some time in 1556! Great restaurant, staff very friendly and efficient, reception staff also with nothing too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit.
Surrounding country has lots to offer.

Lovely part of Spain. This Parador is very good. After a hot day we loved eating out in courtyard in the evenings. Recommend visit to Yuste Monastery/Palace that is nearby.
