PARADOR DE SANTILLANA GIL BLAS

4*

17TH - 18TH CENTURY ANCESTRAL HOMe 

The Parador is installed in the beautiful Barreda-Bracho ancestral home, in the square of Santillana del Mar, a town declared a National Monument, whose origins go back to the 8th century. The main entrance precedes diaphanous, friendly rooms, with wooden floors and traditional decoration for the furniture and the ornamental details. The bedrooms are comfortable; some, with chimneys, offer a beautiful pastoral and rural picture. The dining room serves highland and Liébana stews, prime beef sirloin "a la plancha", salmon stuffed with smoked meat, hake from the Bay of Biscay on green asparagus, the famous "sorropotún" (fish and vegetable stew), and the typical dessert "quesada pasiega".
