The Benavente Parador hotel has been built on the site of the castle constructed by King Fernando II of Leon. The castle was destroyed in 1808 during the Napoleonic Wars.
Restaurant at Parador Benavente
Incorporated in the Parador is the old tower of the castle known as the "Torre del Caracol". This tower contains a beautiful room of the Parador with a much admired Mudejar coffered ceiling.

Beautiful gardens surround the parador where it is possible to sit and enjoy a glass of local wine.

The interior decoration is of classical style with the wall ornaments such as wrought iron lamps recalling the turbulent past of the castle.

The Castilian bricks are featured in the walls with wood floors covered in rugs. The coffered ceilings are a special feature of the Parador Benavente.

The bedrooms are particularly pleasant. There are thirty twin bedrooms, three double bedrooms, two suites and three single bedded rooms.

The Parador restaurant, as usual, specialises in the regional cooking. Worth trying are:
"Bacalao a la tranca", a dish of reconstituted dried salted cod with eggs and peppers.
"Dos y pingada" fried eggs and bacon together with fried bread.
"Lechazo asado" which is roast lamb.
"Tocinillo de ceilo" which is a desert made with egg yolks and syrup.

The restaurant also has a special gluten free menu.

Benavente has over the centuries been a favourite resting place for travellers being the crossing point of the road from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela and the road from France to Pontevedra, Tui and Vigo.

reception desk was outstanding. we needed help in changing a reservation at another parador, and we were using passport reservations. they enabled the change without any penalty or fee. dining room was one of the best meals we had in our 2 weeks in spain and portugal. breakfast was out of this world with choices of great spanish cheeses, and of course fruit, eggs, and pastries. don't eat here if you are worried about your diet. good place to stop when traveling in western spain.

We really enjoyed our 2 days here. The Parador service and general standard was excellent. We enjoyed all the facilities, particularly the pool.

Loved our stay in this parador. Delightful room with balcony over countryside even though town very close on the other side of delightful rose garden. Staff attentive and helpful and food very good. Would recommend it. Only drawback was a lot of noise on the Sat night - we did not discover whether this was because there was a local event or just a Saturday night.
