10TH CENTURY CASTLE ON
THE BIDASOA ESTUARY Founded
by the Navarrese king Sancho Abarca in the 10th c., this Parador rises up in a
beautiful castle which maintains the structure of a medieval fortress in a
monumental, coastal setting. Its defensive appearance, with thick walls,
conceals an interior recovered with mastery. The immense, naked stone of the
courtyard stands out, as do the beautiful views of the French coast and the sea,
which the guest can contemplate from the splendid terrace or from some bedrooms.
Beautiful nooks and crannies, spaces adorned with arches, wrought iron and
coffered ceilings envelop the traveller in an atmosphere of indescribable
beauty. Lances, cannons and armour make up the interior decoration, offering an
air of elegance in a most comfortable atmosphere.
