Manchegan cuisine reinterpreted
Regional specialities from La Mancha form the basis of the cuisine on offer at the Parador de Manzanares. A cuisine based on tradition which does not lack for iconic dishes from the popular recipe book immortalised by Miguel de Cervantes in Don Quixote, but which, at the same time, is reinterpreted in a modern version that is faithful to the rich local produce.
A hostel of Cervantine delights with a modern twist
The restaurant has two dining rooms: Azafrán, a luminous semi-circular space, an heir to the roadside hostel with peaceful views of the gardens, and Albergue, where you can look out over pretty balconies and a wooden porc. The menu features classic dishes such as migas ruleras, gachas
, duelos y quebrantos, stew, Manchego lamb shoulder, tiznao de bacalao and pisto manchego.
Type of kitchen
Cod au gratin with saffron aioli, stewed beans with partridge, shoulder of suckling lamb, fried milk with orange sauce.
Nature and relaxation in the La Mancha plains
The hotel is perfectly located if you want to get to know La Mancha and, especially, the province of Ciudad Real.
A little more than 30 kilometres away is the city of Almagro, with its Plaza Mayor and the only playhouse to remain intact and active since the seventeenth century. A few minutes away you can find villages such as Tomelloso, Daimiel, Argamasilla de Alba or Valdepeñas.
If you are interested in nature, you are in the perfect place. In the surroundings of the Parador you can choose between the National Park of Cabañeros, the Natural Park of Lagunas de Ruidera and the National Park of Las Tablas de Daimiel. Our recommendation is that you visit them all.
