Jan - Dec
RENAISSANCE STYLE CASTLE-PALACE The seat of parliament in 1202, this Renaissance style
castle was built by order of Fernando II de León and forms part of the former
walled enclosure of the town. Practically razed to the ground in 1808 during the
Peninsular War, it conserves the monumental Torre del Caracol, where there is a
living room with an admirable Mudejar coffered ceiling. Surrounded by beautiful
gardens, the interior contains classical decorative elements such as rugs,
forged lamps, coffered ceilings, wood and Castilian bricks. Its spectacular
living rooms are duly equipped to promote their functional value as spaces for
social gatherings. The dreamy bedrooms are comfortable, and the restaurant
offers the region´sgastronomic array: 'arroz a la zamorana' (Zamora-style
rice), 'dos y pingada' (fried dish) and the sweet 'rebojo zamorano'.
