At the gateway to the Asturian Picos de Europa mountains on the banks of the Rio Sella, this historic Parador, housed in an monastery dating back to the 8th century , is the perfect base from which to discover the National Park – by foot straight from the hotel should the mood take you.

Rooms are quite simple in keeping with the monastic heritage of the buidings but with no compromise in terms of comfort and facilities and the hotel restaurant is renowned for its fine dining.

Set in its own grounds the hotel has lots of outdoor space and terracs to sit out and enjoy the fantastic views.

Cangas de Onis, once capital of Asturias (and thus capital of Christian Spain), with its famous Roman Bridge and the first church built after the Reconquista, is just nearby. Within easy reach you can discover the lakes and Sanctuary of Covadonga and the spectacular Ruta del Cares walk.
