A luxurious 16th century pilgrims’ hostel
Parador de Santo Domingo Bernardo de Fresneda

Only 400 metres away from the historical centre of Santo Domingo de la Calzada, the Parador de Santo Domingo Bernardo de Fresneda stands within the Monastery of San Francisco, a beautiful 16th c. monastery.


The Parador is a building of contrasts, striking a perfect balance between tradition and modernity. Its cosy stone-walled rooms, its union of warm red and blue-grey tones and its art collection of classical and avant garde works, will make your stay an unforgettable one. It also has magnificent salons for your most important events.

The Monastery of San Francisco, commissioned by Fray Bernardo de Fresneda, bishop of Zaragoza, from which the monastery takes its name, consists of three parts: the church, the workshop and dioceian museum and the pilgrims’ hostel, which is now home to the Parador.


Rebuilt by Juan de Herrera in 1595, the building is notable for its sober style and splendid cloister. The impressive restoration work of the novices’ patio will amaze visitors with its wide glass vault, under which exclusive events are held. The Río Cabado salon is the ideal place for the best breakfasts.

    Explore the surroundings in Santo Domingo de la Calzada

    Santo Domingo de la Calzada, a city with legendary origins, stands at the foot of the Sierra de la Demanda, on a plain bathed by the waters of the river Oja. A place full of history awaits you there, with streets whose medieval layout will take you back to another age. The best way to discover the city is to explore it on foot, submerging yourself in its beautiful architecture, crowned by the Cathedral, a proto-Gothic construction whose high altarpiece is a jewel of Spanish Renaissance imagery. The beautiful Plaza de España with its medieval walls is also well worth a visit.


    Santo Domingo de la Calzada is also surrounded by incredible places, such as the villages of Briones, Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón and San Millán de la Cogolla, birthplace of the Spanish language and home of the Monasteries of Suso and Yuso, declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city’s location right on the Way of Saint James makes it an ideal starting point for sports such as hiking or golf, while other opportunities include the winter resort of Valdezcaray or the wine route through nearby Haro, which is world famous for its high-quality wines.
