Terrific Parador Terraces

We have chosen to highlight some of the best terraces that Paradors have to offer and what makes them so special.

Offering unforgettable sea views, comfortable bedrooms, new Spa facilities and and a wonderful restaurant, the Parador is one of the most prominent hotels in the area.

Having been thoroughly refurbished in 2020 & 2021 there has never been a better time to visit and relax in one of the modern, stylish bedrooms.

There is a fantastic terrace here which has panoramic views of the coastline, perfect for an evening drink whilst you watch the sea crash onto the rocks below.

This Parador is set high on the hill above the riverside town of Ayamonte overlooking the river border between Spain and Portugal.

The terrace enjoys spectacular views across the River Guadiana to Portugal and out towards the Atlantic Ocean, offering everything you could need and want for a relaxing or romantic break. 

The modern style of the Parador de Ayamonte belies the fact that the building occupies an area where an ancient Roman castle once stood and it’s history, along with its prime setting and peaceful atmosphere that makes the Parador a popular choice for those looking for a tranquil break. 

Parador de Córdoba

With leafy gardens and views of the historic city providing an impressive backdrop – the terrace at the Parador de Córdoba is the perfect place to grab an ice cold drink and relax in the Andalusian heat after a day exploring the city’s abundant cultural offerings.

Whether you’ve had a busy day stepping back in time with a visit to the famous ‘Mezquita’ Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, or enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the labyrinth of historic streets, waiting for you at the Parador is a fabulous terrace overlooking the gardens, pool and tennis courts. Guests can wind down with a game or two of tennis, cool off with a swim or just simply sit and wait for their tasty meals to arrive.

The Parador de Nerja enjoys a prime position on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean and its terrace is perfectly placed to make the most of this beautiful location. 

The building surrounds the verdant gardens and large seasonal outdoor swimming pool, with the sea and mountains providing a picturesque backdrop. Guests can take the private cliffside lift down to the beach below, or enjoy leisurely walks into the town centre and marvel at the views from the ‘Balcon de Europa’ viewpoint. 

 The Parador’s restaurant opens on to an expansive terrace where you can enjoy breakfast in the sunshine or a romantic evening dinner accompanied by fantastic views. 

Sitting on the banks of the River Eo, this fine Parador enjoys a prime position on the north Galician coastline, close to the popular Cathedral Beach and midway between the popular towns of Gijón and A Coruña.

From the Parador de Ribadeo’s modern terrace you can sit and enjoy the scenery alongside the meticulously manicured lawn or take a wander through the gardens to enjoy the countryside from a different viewpoint.

Take your evening meal or a lunch in the light and airy Parador restaurant which also offers views out across the river and its banks.

The ancient medieval town of Sos del Rey Católico is nesteled in the northern Argonese countryside. Famously the birthplace of Ferdinand II of Aragon (of Ferdinand and Isabella fame), the town’s labyrinth of streets are full of well-preserved ancient buildings and renaissance palaces dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. Despite only being built in the 1960s, the Parador de Sos del Rey Católico blends in perfectly with its historic neighbours and the architects took great pains to ensure the stone and design reflects local style, the result is a charming property decorated in traditional fashion.

One of the highlights of the Parador is its restaurant featuring floor length windows with views onto the surrounding town and distant countryside, offering charming vistas while you dine. Bordering the restaurant and bar is a long terrace with plenty of seating whose elegant wooden beams, leafy flourishes and rustic hanging lamps create a cosy atmosphere day and night.

There are few views as picture-perfect as those you can enjoy from the Parador de Toledo. Set on the outskirts of the city across the River Tagus, the Parador enjoys a prime position looking onto the Toledo’s old town. Known as the City of Three Cultures, Toledo’s history spans thousands of years and was famously in-habited by Christian, Muslim and Jewish communities who co-existed fairly successfully for a number of years. The city is built on a hill with the Alcázar (a former palace and military fortress turned library and museum) sitting at the crown with the historic streets and buildings sprawling beneath towards the cities ancient gates and from across the river you can enjoy a full view of the towns impressive landscape.

The Parador is built facing the landscape, with much of the building and many rooms surround the large garden and seasonal outdoor pool. The Parador’s expansive terrace is attached to the restaurant and is the best location to enjoy city views while enjoying a delicious dinner.

The Parador de Vic-Sau is a beautiful stone building nestled in the Catalan countryside and is the perfect destination for those looking for a peaceful break. From charming wooden balconies and the Parador’s terrace, guests can look onto well-tended gardens and a magnificent seasonal outdoor swimming pool with panoramic views of the valley and lake below.

The restaurant specialises in typical Catalan cooking and uses many regional specialities such as Vic’s famous pork and you can follow up dinner with a drink on the bar’s terrace and soak up the stunning surrounding landscapes.



Situated on a wooded hillside in the heart of the Spanish Pyrenees, the Parador de Vielha is in a unique position of enjoying year-round stunning views of the Aran Valley. In summer months you can head here to enjoy rolling green landscapes and cool off in the seasonal outdoor pool. Come wintertime the area transforms into a Winter Wonderland and snow-covered mountains can be enjoyed from the warm of the heated spa pool (or for the braver travellers the nearby ski resorts). 

The Parador’s shining glory is without doubt its round restaurant with conical roof that stands out against the rural landscape. The terrace stretches around the restaurant and all along the side of the main building, allowing guests to enjoy nightly strolls with panoramic views of the valley.
