It is located in a historic position of great interest close to the most attractive areas of the town.

The interior of the Parador® has an elegant, serene atmosphere and this is reflected in the bedrooms and public areas. There are beautiful galleries which feature much rich wood and latticework.

There are 14 inner courtyards and a splendid garden which was used, in former times, for social functions.

The wine cellar has been converted into a bar with a 'Cervantine' ambiance.

Unlike most of the former convents, the Boardroom has an austerity which one would associate with a convent. This is in sharp contrast with the Louis 15th room which is furnished in keeping with the luxury of that period.

The bedrooms, originally the monastic cells, are a haven of peace and tranquility.
Restaurant at Parador Almagro
The restaurant serves traditional La Mancha cuisine and there is a gluten free menu. Some of the traditional dishes have an Arabic influence from the period when the region was under the control of the Moors from North Africa.

Specialities to be tried include :
"Pisto Manchego", a vegetable salad;
"Berenjenas", aubergine dish;
"Mojote" and "Ttiznao", two cold dishes suitable on a hot day;

In the area you may care to visit the Corral de Comedias (the old theatre), the Convent of Calatrava, the Palace of Fugger, the Old University, Plaza Mayor, and the Cathedral.
In July, the Almagro International Festival of Classical Drama is held.

Other interesting events are the feasts of Virgen de las Nieves and San Bartolome which are both held in August.

This Parador was on our 7 day route and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Numerous lovely courtyards to wonder. The room was very pretty and the town was so close we actually walked around on both days. The town square is a great place to sit and watch the locals enjoying themselves. Ask the front desk if anything special is going on at the square. We misssed a local fashion show which would,have been fun. The food was very good however the service was a little too quick. We like to take our time and enjoy our wine and food. Overall another great experience.

Parador Almagro is a lovely building with good quality rooms and food & the service was excellent. We used it as a second stop-over on route to Seville with a view to having 2 days relaxation although we located a very interesting ancient monastry/fort about half an hour away which was well worth a visit.

we have stayed here several times. the last being August this year....the staff were brilliant as usual , the room was just above basic but the food was not good....except for the bar food. I would stay again but only would have breakfast here and eat out the rest of the time

Coming from Australia the historic Paradores are just always fantastic. This one is no exception, friendly staff, lovely room and surroundings, we enjoyed the food at Dinner and Breakfast and just had a great stayover. Unfortunately only one night. We will always stay in Paradores if at all possible when we are in Spain. Never been disappointed.
