Subida a San Pablo s/n. 16001. Cuenca, Cuenca
Parador de Cuenca, Cuenca, Castilla la Mancha, Spain

The former convent of San Pablo occupies a privileged position in the Hoz del Huécar gorge, a compendium of sheer walls and luxuriant vegetation on the outskirts of Cuenca, next to the 'Casas Colgadas' (Suspended Houses).

The glazed cloister, and the former chapel, now an inviting café, complement an interior which combines traditional elements with more contemporary details such as wicker, leather and upholstery. The comfortable, welcoming bedrooms stand out, some of which have splendid views of the 'Casas Colgadas', in addition to the conference rooms, the bar and a wonderful dining room decorated with exquisite taste.

Well-seasoned dishes make up the basis for the traditional cooking of Cuenca, such as 'morteruelo' (rich game-animal paté made with olive oil and spices ), 'pisto con lomo de orza' (tomato-based ratatouille with marinated loin), roasts and 'alajú' (dessert made from almonds, walnuts and honey).
