Attached to a historic monastery, the Hospederia has the ambience of a parador at the prices of a motel. Rooms are high-ceilinged, spacious, and charmingly accoutered, with four-poster beds in some and handsome wooden furnishings in all. Many have Juliet balconies with spectacular views; a favorite are the ones where the former turrets were turned into spa-like showers. You’ll need to reserve well in advance as pilgrim groups often lodge here and can book up the entire hotel. The on-site restaurant isn’t quite as special, but it’s cheery (with its red walls and pink tablecloths) and offers fresh and reasonably priced, if not very exciting, food. We’d recommend the potato soup as a starter and then the stuffed pork tenderloin, sourced from the famed Iberian black-footed pig and filled with dried fruit and foie gras, as your entree.
