The Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera awaits you in the old castle-palace of the Counts of Oropesa, which nestles in the valley of La Vera, close to the Tiétar and Jerte rivers, amongst gorges, natural pools and forests of chestnut trees.
The Parador is both ancient and redolent of comfort, where proud towers and the large courtyard coexist with an exceptional swimming pool surrounded by olive and orange trees. Inside, the elegantly designed salons with fireplaces will take you back in time, while offering an atmosphere of peace and privacy.
The Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera occupies the old castle-palace of the Counts of Oropesa. It dates to the 16th c. and still conserves its ditch and towered walls, along with an exceptional two-floored Gothic gallery in the interior patio.
The castle was the residence of its most illustrious guest between 1556 and 1557. It was selected as a refuge by the emperor Carlos V after he abdicated, and he lived here for several months before finally setting up home in the nearby monastery of Yuste.
