Housed in a former baroque convent, this Parador was one of the first in the network. The building has preserved most of its main elements, such as the wide corridors, the cloister and the orchard, now transformed into the Garden of Antiquities, where archaeological pieces of great historical value are on display. The hotel has spacious rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, gym, sauna and solarium. It also has spacious meeting rooms for holding meetings, presentations and events of all kinds.
Mérida is home to the most important Roman archaeological site on the peninsula.
A short distance from the Parador is the city's main tourist attraction, the magnificent Roman Theater, which every year hosts the International Classical Theater Festival.
The Roman Amphitheater and the National Museum of Roman Art are also a must.
In addition to Rome, the Arab heritage is also present in Merida, the main example being the fabulous Alcazaba.
As well as the historical-artistic heritage, visitors can enjoy nature in Cornalvo Natural Park or visit the bathing areas of the Proserpina reservoir, one of the great recreational areas in the city.
Cáceres, which shares the title of World Heritage City with Mérida, is only 70 kilometres away.
