10TH C. CASTLE In the middle of the fertile plain of the
Ebro and backed by the Beceite mountains, which can be superbly viewed from the
swimming pool and balconies, the Parador rises up in the upper part of the town,
in a setting which combines the monumental beauty of the town with the
attractions of the different natural enclaves which surround it. Abderramán III
decided to build this fortification, which now houses La Zuda (the well), next
to four splendid large Catalan Gothic windows. The decoration of the interior
assimilates the predominance of Christian and regal characters with classical
style furniture and wooden beams. Within the walls, with Arabic motifs, the
dining room is important for its large Gothic windows. Inside, it offers rice
dishes, 'anguila en suc' (eels in broth), 'suquet de peix' (fish in sauce) and 'pastisets'
(vermicelli cakes) and 'Garrofetas' (dessert).
