STONE CONSTRUCTION IN
THE HEART OF THE GREDOS MOUNTAINS The
Gredos mountain range has given refuge to this stone building, the first of the
Paradores, since 1928, among crystalline waters, wild rocks and green pine
groves. Its location, on El Alto del Risquillo, is a privileged viewpoint over
the Tormes valley, the Gredos massif and the Piedrahita and Béjar mountain
ranges, becoming a centre for excursions. Its sturdy stone walls conceal an
interior in which the comfortable bedrooms stand out, some with terraces. The
classicism of the wood prevails in the dining room, library and living rooms.
The presence of granite columns and the furniture offer the whole a traditional
Castilian style. The quality of the meats and local vegetables, such as the
famous 'Judías del Barco' (beans) supply a cuisine rich in roasts and comforting
soups and stews.
