When planning your holiday in Spain one thing to keep in mind is that the country's major airports are conveniently located near some of Paradores' luxury and historic hotels' greatest locations!

Regular flights from the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Germany to Madrid, Barcelona, Santiago de Compostela, Málaga and Valencia means that visiting locations like Paradores Alcalá de Henares, Cardona, Santiago, Málaga Gibralfaro and El Saler is now a total breeze.

Quick connection, perfect escape

Spain's largest airport, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, plays host to a plethora of international flights each day and is a perfect spot to land if you seek the Old World charm offered at locations like Parador Alcalá de Henares or Parador Chinchón. The first is a centuries-old former convent school located in the very heart of the famous UNESCO World Heritage City. Alcalá de Henares is known around the globe as being the birthplace of legendary Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes. Parador Chinchón, meanwhile, lets you enjoy the very best of classic Castile while still being just a short distance from the Spanish capital and its modern airport.

For a dose of fresh air, consider visiting Parador Vic-Sau, a mere 82 kilometres from Barcelona, which offers unparalleled access to nearby Sau Lake and the Guillerías mountain range.
