In the center of this naval and military town by the sea, in the emblematic neighborhood known as La Magdalena, stands the Parador de Ferrol, a stately homewith a nautical air. The hotel is a typical Galician mansion with white glass-enclosed balconies, surrounded by a delightful maritime atmosphere. The décor features nautical elements, including maps of the world and navigation instruments. Surprises include an old ship's lantern by the main staircase. Some of the spacious guest rooms offer a view of the port and magical spots in various places around the hotel reveal magnificent panoramic views of the arsenal buildings and the ría.
Ferrol was built to look out to sea, protecting itself from the invasions it faced. The military arsenal is one of the city's most emblematic locations and is closely linked with its history as a naval and military center. It is situated opposite the avenue known as Los Cantones or Alameda de Suances. The silhouette of industrial activity in the city, including the shipyards, the immense beaches and the magical coast that surrounds them all make Ferrol an appealing destination where visitors can enjoy nature, architecture and history.
Right here in La Magdalena neighborhood, just outside the Parador, you will enjoy beautiful sights such as San Roque Fountain, which bears the oldest coat of arms in the city on its stone front, San Xiao Church and the Jofre Theater, one of the most important examples of theater architecture in Spain. A little over twenty minutes away by car, in the municipality of Mugardos, you can visit San Felipe Castle, another beautiful military fortress on the ria of Ferrol.
The Parador de Ferrol invites you to relax, to discover a city filled with history and to enjoy the exquisite Galician cuisine, which will never fail to please your palate.
