The Parador is well located in the centre of town next door to the Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Guadalupe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Rustic in style, the Parador has many appealing features including an interior courtyard filled with the scent of citrus fruits (oranges and lemons), pretty gardens with fountains and a secluded swimming pool.  There are white-washed walls, archways and cosy guestrooms, many with traditional wooden shutters.  

Guadalupe is a charming town with cobbled streets and traditional houses located in northern Extremadura.  The town essentially grew around the famed monastery of Guadalupe, one of Spain’s most popular tourist attractions.  A statue of the Virgin Mary was discovered in a field in 1325 by a farmer and it was thought to be carved by St Luke.  A shrine was built to house it as it attracted people far and wide to see it.  The monastery complex consists of the Basilica, Mudejar cloister, Gothic cloister and an auditorium building.
