Pº Mercadal. 26500. Calahorra, La Rioja
Paradore de Calahorra, La Rioja, Spain

This red brick construction harmoniously contrasts with the fresh water of the river Ebro and the Cidacos Valley. The dense vegetation of the garden, filled with flowers and palm trees, is inserted in one of the most important historical and artistic ensembles of La Rioja. The most representative building of the former Calagurris, of Roman origin, is the Cathedral. 

Common area

Wide portals, large windows and blinds adorn a structure with smooth lines which, inside, has a decoration with a clear Medieval influence. The working rooms are characterized by their spaciousness and modern and functional installations.
