An oasis of game cuisine
At the Parador de Oropesa you’ll discover the excellent mixture of flavours and textures of the gastronomy of Toledo. The area’s most traditional dishes, influenced by Extremadura, are the result of ancestral recipes, many of them of humble and pastoral origin, in which the natural flavours of products such as artisan cheeses, game meats, vegetables and spices predominate.

Castle and Palace of the Counts of Oropesa
The Parador de Oropesa gets its name from the town’s most important noble, Francisco Álvarez de Toledo y Figueroa, who was appointed as the fifth viceroy of Peru by king Felipe II between 1569 and 1581 and accompanied Carlos I on his campaigns in Africa and Europe.
The building consists of the Castillo Viejo, a Moorish castle of the 12-13th c., and the Castillo Nuevo, built in 1402 as the palace of the Álvarez family of Toledo, counts of Oropesa. El conjunto is notable for its 16th c. stairway and the impressive keep, 25 metres in height and with 5 storeys.
