The Ducal Palace where Napoleon slept
Parador de Lerma

You enjoy the Parador de Lerma already from dozens of kilometres away. The Ducal Palace of Lerma stands, elegant and sober, at the top of the town; it has stone walls, more than 200 iron balconies and four towers with slate roofs.

This 17th century palace, which the Duke of Lerma had built on top of a medieval castle, was the envy of the court. A royal wedding was held here: a queen gave birth, and Napoleon Bonaparte slept here. Besides the imposing façade, highlights include the cloister and its inner courtyard, where Lope de Vega’s works were first performed 500 years ago. You can now take the chance to rest and have a coffee under its panoramic window and admire the columns and semi-circular arches.

The Parador is located in the Plaza Mayor of Lerma, which is one of the largest in Spain (almost 7,000 square meters). The town also has a major network of convents and monasteries such as the Collegiate Church of San Pedro and the Convent of San Blas.

    What to do in Parador de Lerma

    The Duke of Lerma turned the town into a place of recreation for kings, nobles, politicians and courtiers. Besides building his palace, now the Parador, an important network of convents and monasteries was created in Lerma thanks to Francisco Gómez de Sandoval-Rojas. A highlight is the Collegiate Church of San Pedro, which was built in the 17th century and has two period organs.
