Historic Hotels in Spain
Hotels, inns and other accommodation connected to famous figures from history.
The North of Spain
Incorporating Asturias, Galicia, Navarre, Basque and Cantabria, the northern part of Spain is undoubtedly one of the most culturally diverse areas of Europe. And its heritage accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes, too.
Extremadura and Castile la Mancha may not be the most visited areas of Spain for overseas tourists, but that’s exactly why so many discerning travellers like them. Moreover, they contain a disproportionate number of the nation’s historic places to stay.
Andalucia and Southern Spain
There is so much more to the south than the tourism hotspots of the coast. Indeed, there is just as much of interest to the history-enthusiast as the sun lover. With ancient hotels on offer it would be foolish to stay anywhere modern.
Barcelona and Eastern Spain
Barcelona and the Mediterranean coast of Eastern Spain (with resorts such as Benidorm and Alicante) are certainly popular with sunseeking holidaymakers. However, Catalonia and Aragon are also regions of exceptional heritage with some particularly notable old hotels.
Madrid, Castile y Leon, and La Rioja
Madrid might well be a popular destination for visitors to Spain, but the surrounding regions have plenty to offer, too. And if you prefer accommodation of a historic nature then Castile y Leon is home to some rather notable examples.
