Hospedería Convento de la Parra

The Hospedería Convento de la Parra is a monument in itself. Declared a Cultural Interest Asset, the old convent guards a multitude of historical and artistic remains with a simple beauty that captivates our visitors. We encourage all our guests to stop and contemplate the lintelled stone doorway, the baroque altarpieces of the Chapel of the Santísimo Cristo de la Misericordia, the cloister or the numerous architectural elements, such as carpentry, flooring and moulding, preserved from the original building.

The environment of the hotel, in the middle of nature and in the surprising area of Tierra de Barros de Extremadura, is also an exceptional tourist destination, with many attractions to visit.

We encourage you to discover Extremadura with our list of recommendations.

Tierra de Barros and Zafra

Located in the centre of Badajoz, this region takes its name from the pottery tradition of the area. Other typical activities based on the best of the land are the charcuteries and the viticulture. Thus, in a walk around La Parra you can see large areas of vineyards, with which the wines of the denomination of origin Ribera del Guadiana are made.

This is one of the most fertile lands of Extremadura and highly valued since the Ancient times, as evidenced by the Roman remains of Medina de Las Torres or Alanges. In this last town there are some famous thermal baths from the 3rd century.

Very close to La Parra, only 25 kilometres away, is Zafra, a paradise for lovers of history. Do not forget to visit the old Alcázar converted into a Parador and the Colegiata de la Candelaria, where there are altarpieces by Zurbarán and Churriguera.

Badajoz

The city of Badajoz is the gateway to Portugal and it treasures remains of different cultures, a mixture of Mudejar influences, Christian buildings, Portuguese elements and medieval constructions.

Badajoz is a city that embraces its history and shows it to its visitors in a friendly way, through a quiet walk among cobblestone streets. From the Plaza Alta, the most touristic route includes the Casas Mudéjares, the Casas Coloradas, the Alcazaba, the convent of the Adoratrices, the Cathedral, the Giralda and the hermitage of La Soledad.

The best time to visit the walls is the sunset, when you can enjoy the reddish tones of the sky over an unparalleled panoramic view of the city.

Mérida

To speak of Mérida is to speak of its monumental legacy, especially the unique site from the Roman era in an incredible state of preservation. Founded in the year 24 B.C., the capital of Extremadura has one of the greatest archaeological heritages in the Mediterranean world.

World Heritage since 1993, history has given Mérida a unique splendour that can be seen today in the Theater, the Amphitheater, the Diana Temple, the Portico of the Forum, the Arch of Trajan, the Roman Bridge, the Circus or the Acueducto de los Milagros, among other innumerable points of interest.

Beyond the Roman legacy, Mérida preserves monuments of Arab origin such as the Alcazaba, a Visigothic art museum and Catholic buildings such as the Basilica de Santa Eulalia or the cathedral of Santa María la Mayor.
