Hotel Marco Fabio Quintiliano
This new hotel lies at the end of a lateral garden running the length
of the main street of the town.
It is within the old kingdom of Navarra which is now linked to its neighbour of Aragon to the east.
Historically however the two kingdoms were very different, Aragon looked towards Catalonia and Levante for its alliances. Navarra, on the other hand, looked towards the west to the Basque region and France. From 1234 it was part of France until annexed by Spain in 1512.
The people are fiercely independent and are still willing to fight for their right which has been a tradition for centuries.
The plains of the Ebro river are very fertile with a large proportion of the land used for growing the grapes that will become the famous Rioja red wine.
The orange colour of the exterior bricks of this Parador is reflected in the colour schemes used within the building. The interior furniture reflects the traditional role of the parador group in preserving historic buildings by using them as hotels.
At Easter, time should be found to watch the religious procession on
Holy Thursday. In early July the adventurous can visit the world-famous
Feasts of San Fermin, in Pamplona. I have been assured, first hand, that
provided you drink enough wine before hand, you do not feel the damage
caused by the bull and when you wake up you are surrounded by pretty nurses
- though they were almost angels!

|We stopped again at the Calahora Parador at the end of this July en route to the Costa Blanca. Again we were given a lovely spacious room overlooking the Calahora town Plaza Mayor which was very well appointed, peaceful and comfortable. The staff on both the reception and the bar/restaurant were exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to be of assistance. The evening bar meal we decided upon was very good indeed. Breakfast also was very nice and we were very happy to have again stayed at the hotel, in fact so much that we immediately booked a room for the return leg of our trip from Marina Alta with the same result. We very much like the Hotel and would recommend it without hesitation. Looking forward to the next trip !|

|We stayed at the Parador Calahorra for 2 nights this past July. The hotel was easy to find in an interesting small town. Our room was comfortable and quiet, well-equipped and pleasantly decorated. We had a good view of the town and adequate parking. The staff were very friendly and helpful arranging a tour for us at a nearby winery. The restaurant was adequate. We would definitely stay another time and hope to try other Paradores. An enjoyable stay overall. Thank you|
