Hotel Palacio Ducal de Lerma
The Parador of Lerma was built in successive phases between 1601 and 1617, on the site of a 15th century castle, according to the plans of architect Francisco de Mora.
The castle was originally built as a place of lodging, rest and general enjoyment for King Felipe III by Francisco Gomez de Sandoval y Rojas, the first Duke of Lerma.
The building has a central courtyard surrounded by two columned arcades. The first has 20 Tuscan columns with semi-circular arches while the second has 20 Ionic columns.
The palace has been restored and converted into a Parador for 133 guests.
The Parador's cuisine is centred on typical regional products such as suckling lamb, quail and partridge.
There is hare during hunting season while other typical fare includes the traditional cocido (chickpea stew) of Castile, the hearty 'olla podrida' stew and medieval style lentils.
For dessert, try the 'Emes' cookies, San Blas roscas, the mostachones cookies, or the wide variety of cakes and sweets made by the nuns of the order of St. Clare in the city's convent.
22 kms away from Lerma is Covarrubias, Worth visiting are the collegiate Church of San Cosme y San Damián (15th century), the Church of Santo Tomás (12th c.), and the squares of Dona Urraca and Dona Sancha.
A little further is the 18th -century Monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos, where you can hear the Gregorian chants sung by the monastery's monks. The nearby gorge of La Yecla is also worth the visit.
August is the month when everything happens in the region. The Baroque festival features, among other things, a two organ concert at the Collegiate church performed on instruments dating from the year 1615.
The Parador Lerma has thirty six twin bedrooms, twenty three double bedrooms, two suites, one duplex, seven single bedrooms and one easy access bedroom. All bedrooms have television, in-room safe, minibar.
There is also a garage, bar, restaurant, currency exchange, lift, piped music, gift shop, telephone, internet access in communal areas, heating and air conditioning.
The 18 hole Lerma golf course is only 5 kilometres from the Lerma Parador.
From 1 to 10 September the town of Lerma holds its local festival. This includes fairground rides, music and much merriment which can be heard in the immediate vicinity of the Parador. During this period the Parador cannot guarantee the usual peace and quiet.

|Een prachtige parador. Mooi gelegen. De zon was aangestoken. Ons hele verblijf was een feest. De receptie, personeel, mooie kamer (schoon) met uitzicht over de plaza, ontbijt, kortom alles 5 sterren. Alleen moet de kok weer terug naar school! Dit was de eerste keer voor ons in deze parador maar zeker niet de laatste.|

|14th June 2013 We stayed at the Parador Lerma on our way to the ferry at Santander. The Parador is very impressive and our room was very good except that we had to pay extra to get free parking. As my wife is oxygen dependent and we have to plan our journeys with regard to mains electricity for battery charging for her portable oxygen concentrator I arranged with reception to stay in the hotel lounge area and to have lunch in the cafeteria at 1pm before leaving for Santander. This would give us sufficient battery power (about 5 hours) to get to our cabin on board. When we came down for breakfast the next morning the whole lounge area had been set for a wedding so we were not able to sit there until 1pm as arranged neither was the cafeteria going to be open for lunch. Consequently we had to leave 3 hours sooner than we wished. This caused great anxiety to us and I will certainly avoid Paradores in future.|

|My husband I stayed at Parador Lerma for 2 nights in late April 2013. It is easy to find at the top of a tiny hill town above beautiful green rollowing hills. the hotel staff was wecoming and walked us to our room on the 3rd floor. The room was big and comfortable with a nice big bathroom totally spotless. The hotel is lovely and the huge room in the center covered attrium is perfect for sitting and reading and watching kids run around. the weather was colder than we anticipated so we spent time sitting in that beautiful space reading. it was a nice respite after having walked 5 hours a day in Madrid for 4 days. the breakfast was good with plenty of fresh fruit. we had a nice lunch in a family run Italian trattoria across the piazza.|
