Parador Hotel Plasencia
The name ”Plasencia” was given to this town by its founder king Alfonso VIII, meaning ”pleasant for God and for men”.
The Parador of Plasencia is the former Convent of Santo Domingo, founded by the
Zuniga family in the middle of the 15th century and was built in gothic style both inside and out.
As with all restaurants of the Paradors, serving the local dishes of the region is important. However international dishes are also served and there is a special gluten free menu..
The menu may include the following specialities of the chef:
"Sopa de Patatas" which is a potato based soup;
The Festival and Procession of Virgen del Puerto are held on the first Sunday after Easter.
A beautiful sight in February is in the Jerte valley when the cherry trees are in blossom.
There are wonderful natural landscapes in the Jerte valley for walkers as well as the Natural Park of Monfrague, La Vera, and Las Hurdes.
All the rooms have a private bathroom. Also there is a telephone, satellite television, safe and a mini bar.
There is a seasonal swimming pool and facilities for business meetings at Plasencia Parador.

|We are frequent users of Parador hotels as you can always rely on a great standard of service & accommodation. This Parador is an outstanding example of the older buildings. The architecture is wonderful, the rooms excellent & the restaurant fantastic. The dining room is fantastical in the true sense & the food was excellent. I recommend it highly & without reservation.|

|Stayed just the one night in Placensia en route to Seville from Biarritz. Beautiful Parador with exceptionally large rooms that are very well appointed. This was our first experience staying in a Parador and it was thoroughly delightful. Beautifully furnished and mantained. We ate in the dining room and although the food was not exceptional it was very good and the wine list though limited provided some excellent drinking. Service was efficient and friendly. In all we stayed in three Paradores on the trip, later in the month we stayed at Alarcon and Alcaniz and on all occasions we very impressed with the quality of the accommodation, staff and facilities. They are certainly a breath of fresh air when compared with formulaic international hotel chains that dominate tourism. Full credit to the Spanish government for the foresight and planning to set up the Parador system.|

|The Parador de Plasencia is exquisite and beautifully restored, both the public rooms and the bedroom we were allocated. Located in the centre of Plasencia it is only a short walk into the heart of the town. The staff were a delight, and could not have been more helpful. Definitely a gem of a hotel and well worth a visit.|

|It was our second visit to Placesia Parador, this time with our two teenage granddaughter. On both occasions we received the best possible reception and attention from staff and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the magnificent building and ancient town. Our young people were also very impressed and interested|
