Parador Hotel Manzanares
A modern Parador in mature grounds with trees to shade from the summer
sun. This area was made famous by 'Don Quixote'. Many windmills remain
in the area but nowadays only a few are working. Some have become ruins
but luckily many are preserved as museums.
Lovers of wine will prefer to travel the twenty kilometres to the Valdepenas wine cellars.
The building has white walls and Arabic tiles and built in the style of a La Mancha country mansion. The gardens are filled with trees, shrubs, gardens and plants.
In this area is the outdoor swimming pool and the children's play area.
The decor of the interior is with wooden furniture, leather chairs and wrought iron wall lights, giving a friendly, comfortable atmosphere.
The bedrooms have tiled floors, a desk and a coffee table. The windows open out onto a balcony giving views of the surrounding countryside.
The restaurant serves international dishes but specialises in the dishes
of region. The recommended regional specialties include:
"Galiaho" being a cold soup made with garlic, rabbit, partridge,
ham, rosemary, thyme and bay leaves;
Worth visiting are the Piedras Bonas castle, and the little Veracruz church.
It is also worth visiting Almagro, where there is another Parador, to
see the ”Corral de Comedias” (old theatre) and the Main Square of Almagro.
Manzanares is the home of the Regional Rural Fair which is held 10 to 20 July each year. Another annual event is the Drama Festival held in Almagro every July.
The main religious festival celebrates Nuestro Padre Jesus del Perdon and is held every September 14th.
Of course you should visit the Tablas de Daimiel reserve, Lakes of Ruidera,
and and also the Cabaneros National Park.
In the rooms you will find a telephone, television, TV canal plus, and a mini bar.

|A very conveniently located Parador,easy to find as well signposted. The facilities for wheelchair access ( carparking, lift access and rooms) were good and all the staff were very helpful. The bar did meals and the restaurant food was very good. It was a quiet location with plenty of parking (undercover and garage space being available).|

|Member of the "amigos" club, I've always enjoyed staying in the Paradores and Manzanares was, as with the majority of the Paradores, very nice, comfortable and the staff pleasant and helpful. I look forward when you can reopen your restaurants again, like in Calahorra or Tui. I stayed here recently and was disappointed they only served as "cafeteria", but the food was still OK, but the regional specialities were missing. Luckily the Paradores represent the traditional Spain, please continue, thanks.|
