Castilian "ducal" cuisine
The authenticity and simplicity of traditional Castilian cuisine is faithfully reflected in the range of cuisine on offer at the Parador de Lerma. A unique culinary experience that presents tasty dishes based on local natural products such as roast suckling lamb, Burgos cheese and rice black pudding.

The Ducal Palace where Napoleon slept
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.
