The Parador of Tortosa is in the upper part of town which is in the middle of the fertile Catalonia plain of Ebro. This area has fine buildings placed
in the natural recesses which surround the castle.
Abderraman III built this fortification in the tenth century. Inside there is La Zuda (the well) next to four splendid large Catalan Gothic windows.
The decoration of the interior features Christian and royal features which is combined with Arabic motifs on the walls.

|we had a lovely stay at the Paradores de Tortosa. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms and, with that, a very nice atmosphere. The only thing was that staff in the restaurant did not like to speak another language than Spanish, this is a pitty !|

|Lovely place to stay at. Room and hospitality were absolutely great. Breakfast and dinner was very good. Very beautiful view over the town with a lot of photos to bring home and show friends. Unfortunately a little bit hard to find the way up. I bought some bottles of olive oil, but when I came home I noticed that they had already expired, which made me very sad.|

|We had a lovely time at the Parador in Tortosa. Rooms were very clean and generous for space. Breakfast was delicious. Stunning view of the city. Only downfall was that someone siphoned our gas from the parking lot during the night. Only realizing this when we were on the road again. Thankfully they only took 1/4 tank! Perhaps more security in the lot overnight should be considered. We'll be back - with a locked tank.|

|Once again the Parador organisation has taken an old ruined castle and made a stunning hotel out of it. Well positioned with extensive views all round. BUT, if you are unsteady on your feet, like my wife, or have to use a wheelchair you will have difficulty getting around this hotel. Stairs up into reception, steps up to the lifts, steps to the dining and breakfast rooms. Also huge steps to the lovely swimming pool. Our room with balcony had great views across the town and the river Ebro. Meals were as standard to all Paradors and we have stayed in many (perhaps more variety is in order), there are plenty of restaurants in the town below. The Ebro delta national park is a delight, well worth exploring as are the mountains seen in the distance. A very interesting place to stay.|
