Former Mill in Coastal Town
Jan - Dec
FORMER MILL IN THE ISABEL LA CATÓLICA PARK The Parador occupies hundred-year-old mill,
located in the Isabel La Católica Park, one of the most beautiful spots in the
town of Gijón. It has a beautiful pond, which offers great harmony and
tranquility. The closeness of San Lorenzo beach and of the Cimadevilla sailors'
quarter, convert it into an ideal place to enjoy unforgettable days. It has a
spacious, friendly and bright interior which recreates the warmth of the setting
in bedrooms and common rooms, while the closeness of the sea can be felt from
their windows. 'Fabada' (rich stew of beans, pork, etc.) is the dining room´s
star dish, although beans ('fabes') are included in other preparations. The 'caldereta
de marisco' (seafood stew), 'chopa a la sidra' (fish in cider), 'pote asturiano'
(vegetable and pork broth) and 'merluza con cocochas' (hake) also stand out. The
dessert menu includes rice pudding, 'frixuelos' (cream-filled crepes) and 'casadielles'
(fried sweet with dried fruit).
