Genuine Castilian cuisine
The Parador de La Granja is a clear exponent of genuine Castilian cuisine, where stews and roast meats stand out, accompanied by the prestigious wines of the area. The menu offers traditional and authentic cuisine, with a touch of modernity, with dishes such as revolconas ibéricas (potatoes) with sautéed suckling pig sweetbreads.
A palatial sanctuary for suckling pig and beans
Sheltered by the majestic gate that gives it its name, the Restaurant Puerta de la Reina awaits you. In the modern and bright dining hall, with spectacular brick arches supported by granite ashlars, you will be able to enjoy the typical La Granja beans with pig's ear, roast suckling pig and lamb. And, for dessert, ponche segoviano (typical sponge cake).

Inside the Parador there are three interior courtyards on four levels, which are visible through galleries of semi-circular arches.
After the main building, the former barracks of the Guardia de Corps now houses the Parador’s modern Guardia de Corps Conference and Convention Centre, just 55 minutes from Madrid.
This exclusive venue has 16 meeting rooms with capacity for more than 600 people.
