90 years at the service of Spanish tourism

Paradores celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2019. Its origins date back to 1910, when the Spanish Government presided over by José Canalejas decided to commission the Marquis Benigno de la Vega-Inclán with the project of creating a hotel structure, non-existent in Spain at that time, whose establishments would provide accommodation for tourists and travellers, while at the same time improving Spain's international image. The following year, a Royal Commission for Tourism was created, headed by the aforementioned Marquis de la Vega-Inclán.
