The Parador Museo de Oropesa is a beautiful building that transmits its history and legends through spectacular function rooms, columns and arcades, an imposing courtyard and the enigmatic keep. It was once the ancestral home of the Álvarez de Toledo family, counts of Oropesa, and in past times sheltered soldiers, religious persons and nobles. In 1930, it was converted into the first historic Parador in the government-owned chain, paving the way for a network of lodgings located in castles, palaces, convents and monasteries which is unique in the world. A stay at the hotel becomes a date with history in an enticing location where you can relax and enjoy the spectacular views of the Sierra de Gredos mountains and excellent cuisine.
In Oropesa, you will discover a pleasant medieval town dotted with historic convents and monasteries, churches and palaces. The Parador, which can be seen from the highway connecting Madrid with Extremadura, is the finest example of the historic and scenic riches this area has to offer.
In the month of April, you can attend Oropesa's Medieval Days, when the town recreates its magnificent past. The Parador becomes the perfect place to travel back to another time and feel like true kings and queens of the Middle Ages.
