If I was going to start over our time in Spain, I would stay at one of the Spanish Paradores in every single town. The value is incredible, and each is so unique. You can get a good deal by investing in a 5-day card and then you can pick and choose your Paradores by town that you visit. Your stay includes breakfast typically, and there are other benefits for seniors and young people.

From hotel rooms you may look down into the gorge that is 120m deep, or into the courtyard and pool. Time it right, or book in advance to get a good deal at an amazing looking hotel.
