Parador Hotel La Seu D'Urgell
This Parador is located next to the Romanesque cathedral of La Seu D'Urgell in a historical area which attracts many tourists.
The rooms of the hotel are light and the furniture and funishings are modern to give comfortable living with elegance, Similar decor is used in the bedrooms of which many have views of the mountains.
The hotel restaurant features cooking of the high mountains with a rich variety of dishes such as trout, game meat, pates, cheeses and broth.
International dishes are also available and there is a special gluten free menu. Many guests comment on the very good buffet breakfast served at this and other Paradors.
Some of the more traditional dishes of the region worth trying include:
The nearby old town centre is dominated by the magnificent cathedral of Santa Maria, a Romanesque building dating back to the twelfth century. Its cloister has beautifully carved columns and the museum has a very valuable collection of medieval art. Another place of interest is the church of San Miguelwhich was built in the same period.
The Sant Ermengol Fair and the Pyrenees hand-made cheese Fair are very popular. Both are celebrated on the third weekend of October and give an opportunity to taste the various cheese and wines of the region.
Every Tuesday and Saturday a traditional market is held in the town.
For 700 years, the bishop was also the joint ruler of nearby Andorra which should be visited being so close.
The Seu D'Urgell Parador is well placed for the skiing resorts of the Catalonian and Andorra Pyrenees. The world famous canoeing championships are held on the nearby river Segre during the summer.

|One night in September 2015 as a stop on a 3 nights package in paradores called the "Pyrenées Route", including breakfast & dinner. The room was comfortable, the building is fine and interesting as it has been built around remnants of an old cloister, extremely well located to visit the city, the staff friendly but no help for luggage. In fact, nothing really exceptionnal: a good middle class hotel, but not the class you may have expected from a Parador. On the bad side: (very) high parking fee and catastrophic restaurant. One of the worst steak I have ever seen, without exageration something I would not even have given to my dog. Pasta also were much too spicy. Both went back as they came without raising the slightest comment from the waitress. No Maitre d'hotel in sight, a place obviously understaffed with slow and poor service. Only consolation: local wine was good and cheap. Altogether:was expecting much better from a Parador. Would advise to stay in Andorra...|

|We spent two days ( one night) at the Hotel, early September using the Golden Days scheme. The room on the 4th floor was nice and had beautiful view over the mountains. We dined in the restaurant. Although quite expensive we enjoyed the meal. Breakfast was superb with a vast array of salamis, cheeses, ham, fruit, pastries etc. The waitress at breakfast ( and the dinner) also deserves a mention for her good service and friendly manner. To make along story short- suggested ( only to friends)|

|My husband and I had picked this parador as a change from 4 days in bustling Barcelona, and we were not disappointed. We felt immediately relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed 3 days in this splendid, wonderfully located hotel. The parador itself is clean and quiet and sunbathing on the roof is a real pleasure, overlooking the 14thC cathedral. The only negative, which is not specific to this parador alone, is that the restaurant did not open until 8:30 which is late for those of used to eating earlier. Would recommend without hesitation.|

|We are four friends who stayed at this parador one night in early September after a fantastic walking holiday in AIgues Tortes. Dropping in from the street, we were taken well care of. Food quality was great, rooms were comfortable (especially after the packed huts in Aigues Tortes) and we appreciated the quiet yet central location of the Parador. Good access to internet was particularly appreciated, as I needed this to deal with a few work-related challenges. The nearby museum, where (among other treasures) they have an illustrated version of the Apocalypse from the 10th century, is an absolute must. I would warmly recommend this place for a stop while travelling through the beautiful region of upper Catalonia.|
