The Parador de Oropesa was the first Parador to be installed in a historic building, a Medieval castle located between the Gredos Mountains and the River Tagus, surrounded by a huge holm oak forest. It began as a castle, was then the palace of the Counts of Oropesa, a house and manor of the 5th Viceroy of Peru, after whom the Parador is named. Inside it houses a museum and its exquisite restaurant and open-air swimming pool are highlights.
There are various activities you can enjoy in the town of Oropesa. Visiting the monuments in the area, such as the Convent of La Misericordia or the Church of San Bernardo. If you want to discover more, the Tiétar Valley Route, the Embroidery Route or the Ceramics Route will delight you. The area is known for its craft tradition. The fame of the embroidery of Lagartera and the ceramics of Puente del Arzobispo stretch beyond the province. Both towns are close to Oropesa.

Oropesa is located between the Sierra de Gredos Mountain Range and the river Tagus. A location, halfway between the provinces of Toledo and Estremadura, which it makes the most of by showing off the best of the area. Its castle is an icon that can be seen in the distance from the road. This monumental complex consists of two castles, the New Castle or palace of the Counts of Oropesa, which is now a Parador; and the Old Castle, which has an impressive keep topped by four defensive sentry boxes. Also notable are the parade ground and the staircase attached to the wall leading up to the tower.
The town’s Medieval past can be seen in the layout of its narrow, cobbled streets.
Activities open to tourists include visits to monuments such as the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, the Convent of La Misericordia and the Church of San Bernardo.
