The Parador de Ciudad Rodrigo is located in the former castle of Enrique II de Trastámara. An impressive defensive complex dominated by the Torre del Homenaje or Tower Keep, as well as the battlements and walls still standing, that once guarded the border with Portugal. The Parador has a park and a children's play area, making it an ideal family destination.
It is situated near the river, at an elevation making it possible to view the entire city. It’s a good place to begin exploring the Historical-Artistic Site of Ciudad Rodrigo, by walking along its walls towards the Plaza Mayor, stopping at the Town Hall and Cathedral. On the way back, roam its streets with churches, palaces and stately homes, to eventually watch the sun set over the Águeda River in the evocative gardens of the Parador. Make a fitting end to the evening in the restaurant, by tasting the typical dishes of the charra cuisine, based on tasty sausages, succulent roasts, and the best Iberian ham.

Ciudad Rodrigo is part of the Network of Spain’s Most Beautiful Villages. Its rich heritage which consists of the walls that surround the city, its Cathedral and Town Hall, and the palaces and stately homes in its historic quarter, have earned it the title of Historical-Artistic Site. If you're on the lookout for adventure, you can go white water rafting on the Águeda river. Guests at the Parador are entitled to a discount, ask us upon your arrival.
From Ciudad Rodrigo you can head to other towns included in the Network such as Cancelario, Mogarraz, Miranda del Castañar or Ledesma, and La Alberca, in the Sierra de Francia. The Arribes del Duero Nature Park is also close by, with a multitude of sporting and leisure activities.
A little further away is the provincial capital, Salamanca (80 km), a World Heritage City. We recommend a visit to its Plaza Mayor, stopping to look at the façades of the Casa de las Conchas and the University, to find the image of the frog; and climbing the medieval towers of its cathedral for gorgeous views of the city.
The Portuguese border is just 25 kilometres away, a short distance that lets you discover, if you’re up for it, the fortified town of Almeida, where you can walk around most of its walled perimeter.
The Parador de Ciudad Rodrigo, one of the oldest in the Parador Network, provides a different setting for your celebrations. Its marvellous gardens that overlook the fertile plains of the river Águeda, the impressive architecture and the Castilian furniture will endow your meetings and events with distinction and elegance.
