Historic Convent in Monumental Town
Jan - Dec
Convent of San Francisco Under
the modern cupola which covers the novices patio, we may find the "Recreo"
Restaurant, whose name refers to the break the monks used to take in that same
patio. This new gastronomical offer is based on La Rioja´swonderful products,
which are prepared in a simple way. The menu abounds with tapas and sampler
dishes for sharing. The décor and the waiters' outfits are in unison with the
restaurant´smodern features and the wine list offers the most innovative
products of the region´scellars.
The Parador is sited in the Convent of San Francisco, 800 meters from the
historic center of Santo Domingo de la Calzada. The convent was rebuilt in 1595
by Juan Herrera, and is composed of three clearly differentiated seccions:
Church, Museum-WorkShop and Guest House. Once restored, the later will be
converted into a Parador. Its location on the "Way of Saint James" pilgrimage
route, its design, and its unmistakable cultural value make it the ideal place
for rural tourism, nature walks, or to enjoy a northern winter at its best.
