Parador de – Baiona (Bayona) - Galician fortress (4*)
Magnificently located on the north west coast of Spain and close to the Portuguese border, Parador de Baiona is a traditional Galician manor house encompassed within the walls of a medieval fortress originally intended to deter pirates from this stretch of coast (Sir Francis Drake was repelled by the inhabitants of Baiona in 1585).
Flaunting Galician character from the buildings’ arquitecture through to the truly remarkable historic interior, Baiona’s Parador features timber beams and vaultings and a grand central staircase. A number of the bedrooms have splendid sea views which we highly recommend and are available at a supplement. The lush green gardens and outside swimming pool enable guests to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this idyllic Parador.
- Fantastic views of the sea and 1km of walls to walk round.
- Consider upgrading to a larger room with views.
- Continental breakfast can be ordered with room service in the bedroom free of charge.
