Parador Gredos

The very first Parador in Spain was opened in Gredos in 1928, occupying a stone building surrounded by clear pure waters and green pine forests, just 170km from the capital, Madrid. It is in a privileged location, in the Alto del Risquillo near the Tormes valley, Gredos massif and Piedrahita and Bejar sierras, a great spot for all types of nature activities and excursions around the beautiful area of the Sierra de Gredos. The wonderful thing about the Parador is that there are activities for all ages during all four seasons. There is no perfect month to visit, because there is always something to do!

Parador Gredos was built on the orders of King Alfonso XIII as a hunting lodge in 1926 and hosted an important historic event in 1978: the signing of the Spanish Constitution. Today the hotel retains the original Castilian style of the royal hunting lodge, with granite columns, classical wooden features and traditional furnishings.
