What to eat...

The Parador´sgastronomy is based on natural flavorful products found locally. The blood sausage with rice and Burgos fresh cheese stand out, without forgetting the fresh river fish, such as trout, as well as arriero-style soups and stews (made with garlic, peppers, onion and often paprika), such as 'ajo carretero' (a lamb stew with tomato, onion and garlic) or 'ajo pastor', always accompanied by the traditional 'Torta de Aranda', a round bread made with olive oil.

The lamb, roasted in a wood-fired oven slowly and with care, should not be missed, nor should desserts from the palace´srecipe books such as the 'Cañas del Duque rellenas de crema de vainilla' (tube-shaped pastries filled with vanilla cream), 'Pastel de membrillo' (quince cake) and the 'Dulcería en sartén' (pan fried sweets).
The fields of the Ribera del Arlanza provide the area with some magnificent wines that have a very distinct character; the tempranillo or 'tinto fino' grape, as it is referred to locally, is king in these delicious reds.
