Restaurant Parador of Manzanares - Spain
Parador® Manzanares is between two of the most beautiful nature reserves in the country, the Lakes of Ruidera and the Tablas de Daimiel.

Lovers of wine will prefer to travel the twenty kilometres to the Valdepenas wine cellars.

The building has white walls and Arabic tiles and built in the style of a La Mancha country mansion. The gardens are filled with trees, shrubs, gardens and plants.

In this area is the outdoor swimming pool and the children's play area.

The decor of the interior is with wooden furniture, leather chairs and wrought iron wall lights, giving a friendly, comfortable atmosphere.

The bedrooms have tiled floors, a desk and a coffee table. The windows open out onto a balcony giving views of the surrounding countryside. Parador Manzanares garden

The restaurant serves international dishes but specialises in the dishes of region. The recommended regional specialties include: "Galiaho" being a cold soup made with garlic, rabbit, partridge, ham, rosemary, thyme and bay leaves;
"Mojete de conejo" which is rabbit cooked with pine seeds;
"caldereta manchega", a delicious lamb stew;
"Mostillo" which is cooked grapes flavoured with aniseed, cinnamon and cloves;
Manzanares is a busy commercial town but around the Main Square there are buildings from the the times of its previous glory when the town and surrounding area were owned by Alvaro de Bazan.

Worth visiting are the Piedras Bonas castle, and the little Veracruz church.

It is also worth visiting Almagro, where there is another Parador®, to see the ”Corral de Comedias” (old theatre) and the Main Square of Almagro.

A very conveniently located Parador,easy to find as well signposted. The facilities for wheelchair access ( carparking, lift access and rooms) were good and all the staff were very helpful. The bar did meals and the restaurant food was very good. It was a quiet location with plenty of parking (undercover and garage space being available).

Member of the "amigos" club, I've always enjoyed staying in the Paradores and Manzanares was, as with the majority of the Paradores, very nice, comfortable and the staff pleasant and helpful. I look forward when you can reopen your restaurants again, like in Calahorra or Tui. I stayed here recently and was disappointed they only served as "cafeteria", but the food was still OK, but the regional specialities were missing. Luckily the Paradores represent the traditional Spain, please continue, thanks.

This is our 4th stay at Manzanares and as usual the staff were very friendly and efficient . Although the hotel could do with a little TLC.
