The Hotel is located on a headland in a 9th century fortified enclosure, alongside the 11th century Minyona tower and an 11th century church with characteristic features from the surrounding Catalan Romanesque. Its location provides exceptional panoramic views over the city and the fertile lands bathed by the River Cardoner. Some of the hotel rooms have charming canopy beds. Pits, towers, walls and gothic features come together with a predominantly comfortable decor and Catalan-inspired mediaeval furnishings. Catalan cuisine is served in the dining room including aubergine terrine with pig's trotters, selections of sausages and especially barbecue dishes with the braised lamb shoulder a highlight. All the Parador has smoking policy, smoking rooms under

Phenomenal location!

We've stayed at several paradors in the past, and with the exception of the Granada parador, this was the best! This is the kind of place that makes you get staying at paradors. This is an ancient, hilltop, castle and fortress. The location is amazing. The drive to get there along back roads in the mountains from Girona is gorgeous, and then you wrap it up with this truly spectacular spot. The rooms and food aren't commiserate with the price, which seems to be the case at all paradors. But this location is hard to beat. The town is quaint, and if you are young and fit the walking path into town is very nice, though it isn't completely lit at night (there is an app for that). This was a highlight of the trip for us!
