Parador de Tortosa, Tortosa, Tarragona, Spain

In the middle of the fertile plain of the Ebro and backed by the Beceite mountains, which can be superbly viewed from the swimming pool and balconies, the Parador rises up in the upper part of the town, in a setting which combines the monumental beauty of the town with the attractions of the different natural enclaves which surround it.

Abderramán III decided to build this fortification, which now houses La Zuda (the well), next to four splendid large Catalan Gothic windows. The decoration of the interior assimilates the predominance of Christian and regal characters with classical style furniture and wooden beams. Within the walls, with Arabic motifs, the dining room is important for its large Gothic windows.
