Hotel Hostal Virrey de Toledo
Oropesa is one of the oldest inhabited sites in Spain. It is said that
Hercules founded the town in 1716 BC. under it's previous name of Orospeda.
Restoration took place in 1402 which is basically the castle of today. A later member of the family was Francisco de Toledo, Count of Oropesa who served as 'Virrey' of Peru after whom the Parador has its name.
Over the years the castle has been a refuge for soldiers, monks, nobles and travellers and this use continues as a Parador.
From the rooms, or better still from the top of the Homenaje (Homage) Tower, there are exceptional panoramic views of the Vineyards, olive groves and grazing land with the background the often snowcapped Gredos mountain range.
Similar views can also be enjoyed while using the hotel swimming pool.
Columns and arcades make the courtyard a feature of the Parador with original adornments such as curtains, lamps, and large chests are used as decoration.
Game and seasonal produce form the basis of the dishes from Oropesa
with Toledo specialising in tasty roasted lamb. The Oropesa Parador restaurant
specialises in these local dishes which are to be found on the menu. The
chef recommends that you try:
This Parador of Oropesa has thirty twin bedded rooms, fourteen rooms with a double bed and four suites. All the the rooms have a private bathroom and also contain a telephone, satellite television and a mini bar.
The bedrooms are smaller than is usual in a Parador but are not unduly cramped. They are bright and decorated with woven curtains and bedspreads and have windows looking out over the vineyards of the area.
The Parador Oropesa has air conditioning and central heating, currency exchange, lift, parking facilities (without security and limited places), piped music, satellite television, seasonal swimming pool, a restaurant and bar. There are facilities to hold business meetings.

|We arrived at the Parador of Oropesa having travelled through the Gredos mountains and as ever had a good welcome. The room as always was most satisfactory. The public areas were very interesting. The food was good and the hotel has an excellent position near to the town. The staff throughout were as usual helpful and happy. This will be another Parador we would visit again. We have now visited 27 throughout Spain.|

|My husband and I stayed at Orpesa for the last two nights of a 10 night tour of paradores: Segovia, Salamanca, Plasencia, Caceres, Trujillo and Oropesa. We had a wonderful holiday- what is so nice about the Paradores is that although your surroundings might be very different - real contrasts between the modern hotel of Segovia and the convent at Plasencia- the standards are the same which is really nice. We loved Oropesa- the building, the pool and the village. As someone else has mentioned this isn't a holiday village- it's 'real' Spain the bars and tapas were great and the locals were friendly. We enjoyed the holiday so muc h we are planning another tour of Paradores in 2014!!|

|Beautiful building, friendly staff and our room was very big. Unfortunately we arrived on Sunday so the historic castle (as well as everything else) was shut. The castle is also closed on Monday as well! fortunately we were here for 2 nights so managed to visit the castle on the morning that we left. Nice big pool (unheated, so a shock initially). Great breakfast, so didn't need lunch, dinner not so great, but after all, it depends on your choice. The bacon, egg and breadcrumbs starter was massive, but to be honest, not worth having more than a spoonful! We avoided this dish everywhere. The venison stew main course was tasteless. Could have been beef. Was it microwaved? I'll guess I'll never know. But the fish dishes were good. The measures of vodka with my tonic were so big, you only need the one! Bearing in mind the tour we were on started here on the Sunday and the castle is closed to visitors for two days was a bit disappointing. It should open on the Monday at least.|
