Medieval armor, heavy tapestries, hanging lanterns, and reproduction antique furniture give this parador a gravitas that other lodgings in Zamora lack. Built in the mid–15th century on the site of an earlier Roman fortress, the building features a beautiful staircase and a dignified wood and stone interior courtyard with a well in the center. The two levels of guest rooms are arrayed around the central patio and most have big windows with heavy wooden shutters. The decor mixes richly colored fabrics with dark wood furnishings for a modern interpretation of traditional style. The location is within convenient walking distance of attractions.
