In the historic quarter of the sizeable town of Ávila, this Parador is installed within the former -Piedras Albas- Palace, backing onto the impressive city walls. In keeping with its surroundings, the hotel's interior has a warm and intimate feel creating a very refreshing atmosphere, enriching your time spent there. Its beautiful decorative features include granite and adobe floors, bright colours and spacious rooms, some with four poster beds. These features all combine to create a light feel to the rooms. The Parador also features a garden containing archaeological remains, a magnificent glass-roofed courtyard, partitionable function rooms and a cafeteria. The hotel's restaurant provides a beautiful view over the gardens and the city walls. Here you can sample the 'pucheretes teresianos' (vegetable and pork stew), roast suckling pig, veal chops, Judías de El Barco (local bean dish) and the excellent yemas de la Santa (delicious dessert made from egg yolks).
