Set in the historic centre of Plasencia, in the northern region of Extramadura, the hotel offers the perfect location from which to explore the ancient city and its beautiful surrounding landscapes.  This splendid Parador, housed in a former 15th century convent, has retained many original architectural features including magnificent archways, vaulted ceilings, Renaissance cloisters, spacious rooms and interior courtyards.        
 
The city centre of Plasencia, declared a Cultural Heritage Site, has a wealth of historic buildings, palaces, cathedrals, an aqueduct, medieval walls and fortified towers and gates.  Visitors to this area can explore the Sierra de Gata Mountains and Jerte River Valley, with its spectacular natural springs, cherry groves that are quite spectacular in Feb-Mar and the Monfragüe National Park.  Here you will see gushing waterfalls, many nature trails, pretty historic towns and enjoy the local delicacies such as the delicious Ibérico ham and exquisite Torta del Casar cheese.  Several parks surround the city but Los Pinos is of particular interest with its variety of birdlife, outdoor sculpture museum and extensive botanical gardens.
