A fully restored 16th century palace just seconds from Avila’s Gothic-Romanesque cathedral
History & culture
Set within the watchtowers and turrets of Avila’s medieval city walls, this fully restored, 16th century palace enjoys a privileged location opposite the imposing Romanesque cathedral and just minutes from the churches, convents and palaces of what is one of Spain’s most enchanting and fervently religious cities.
Sympathetically restored rooms and suites feature elegant furnishings in keeping with the hotel’s Habsburg-era origins. Wrought iron spiral staircases, original brickwork, wood beam ceilings and stone window recesses framed in classic drapery only add to the sense of history and post-medieval charm, while modern amenities including free Wifi and air conditioning bring things firmly into the 21st century.
A central courtyard framed by a stunning three-tiered gallery sets the scene for delicious buffet breakfast while the restaurant, El Tostado, showcases the best in regional gastronomy and viticulture, all served below glittering chandeliers.
While the hotel doesn’t have any leisure facilities, the myriad restaurants, shops and historic attractions of Avila should be more than enough to keep you entertained. Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the property.
