12th c. former
The Parador occupies a 12th c. former hospital, next to the
cathedral, built by Saint Dominic to give shelter to the pilgrims on the Road to
Santiago. In a regal and elegant style, it has majestic living rooms and a lobby with
Gothic arches and wooden coffered ceilings. Noble materials and bright colours - blues
and whites - lead to comfortable bedrooms, decorated with exquisite taste; some have
four poster beds. A warm, harmonious and balanced environment, also suitable for social
functions and meetings. In the restaurant it is possible to sample stuffed "piquillo"
peppers, "bacalao a la riojana" (cod) and vegetable stew from La Ribera, in addition to
the excellent wines of La Rioja.
