Hotel Rey Fernando II de Leon
The Benavente Parador hotel has been built on the site of the castle constructed by
King Fernando II of Leon. The castle was destroyed in 1808 during the Napoleonic
Beautiful gardens surround the parador where it is possible to sit and enjoy a glass of local wine.
The interior decoration is of classical style with the wall ornaments such as wrought iron lamps recalling the turbulent past of the castle.
The Castilian bricks are featured in the walls with wood floors covered in rugs. The coffered ceilings are a special feature of the Parador Benavente.
The bedrooms are particularly pleasant. There are thirty twin bedrooms,
three double bedrooms, two suites and three single bedded rooms.
The restaurant also has a special gluten free menu.
Benavente has over the centuries been a favourite resting place for travellers
being the crossing point of the road from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela
and the road from France to Pontevedra, Tui and Vigo.
The main local festival is the ”toro enmaromado” (tied-up bull) which is held the day before the Corpus Christi religious holiday in June.
All the bedrooms have private bathroom, telephone, cable television, mini bar, safe, hair dryer and air conditioning.
The Parador of Benavente has a conference room, lift, air conditioning in the dining room, bar, restaurant, shop, wireless internet, seasonal swimming pool, currency exchange and garden.

|reception desk was outstanding. we needed help in changing a reservation at another parador, and we were using passport reservations. they enabled the change without any penalty or fee. dining room was one of the best meals we had in our 2 weeks in spain and portugal. breakfast was out of this world with choices of great spanish cheeses, and of course fruit, eggs, and pastries. don't eat here if you are worried about your diet. good place to stop when traveling in western spain.|
