Madrilenian cuisine with Cervantine roots
The gastronomic offer of the Parador de Alcalá de Henares combines the culinary tradition of Madrid, without forgetting references to Cervantes' recipes as one of its great hallmarks. A menu supported by a selection of D.O. Madrid wines.
Gastronomy with a touch of Castilian flair
Set in the magnificent 17th-century building, the former convent-college of the Dominicans of Saint Thomas Aquinas, the modern decoration of the Restaurant Santo Tomás is already an adventure when sitting at the table predisposes you to enjoy its gastronomy. A traditional cuisine whose menu includes specialities such as migas alcalaínas (fried breadcrumbs dish), croquetas de cocido (stew croquettes) or costrada de Alcalá (pastry dessert).
Type of kitchen
The traditional and regional cuisine of Paradores
The offer is based on dishes from the regional cuisine of Paradores, as well as traditional classics such as cocido madrileño croquettes (stew), sopa boba alcalaína (traditional soup), migas (fried breadcrumbs) or duelos y quebrantos (eggs, chorizo and bacon dish).
Tradition and the avant-garde in the cradle of Spanish literature
The hotel is fully equipped with a spa, business centre, convention centre and twelve conference rooms. The location of this Parador, 26 kilometres from Madrid, 20 kilometres from Barajas International Airport and the IFEMA facilities, and only 2 kilometres away from the train station, make it an attractive destination, not only for tourism but also for conferences and celebrations.
Alcalá de Henares boasts the title of World Heritage City, and no wonder. In the cobbled streets of its historic centre, you’ll discover the historical legacy of this university city. A literary capital par excellence, this is where Miguel de Cervantes was born and where Francisco de Quevedo, Lope de Vega, Calderón de la Barca, Tirso de Molina and San Juan de la Cruz, geniuses of the Spanish Renaissance, lived.
The Parador de Alcalá isn’t just the best starting point for visiting the city, but it’s also a good option for hosting conferences and celebrations. Once you come here, we know for certain that you’ll return, just as the storks return every year to the city spires.
