Parador de Monforte de Lemos
Very Nice stay
Parador Monforte de Lemos – is a state-operated lodging facility (paradors include historic castles, monasteries, villas and palaces renovated for tourist lodging). This parador is atop the highest hill overlooking the town of Monforte. It was built as a monastery in the 16th century, with arches on the first and second floors surrounding a courtyard with a covered well. We had a choice room in the front of the building overlooking the town. It was at the monastery that we learned the difference between “los banos” (the whole bathroom experience) and “aseos” (toilet and sink for hand washing). One uses the term “aseos” for toilets throughout Spain, one of the many differences in the language between European and American Spanish.
Unique Quality: our first parador stay. nothing bad at all, we got breakfast included in the rate so all was fine. dinner is pricey, but other options are close by. we loved it. just walk into town down the hill. nice little town with good river walk area.
very nice historic setting and facilities. Staff very accomodating and helpful in all matters. fun place to stay at. walk into town, nice river side area. lodging everything works right. no issues at all.
Unique Quality: historic settings. nicely done
Directions: high upon the highest hill in town.
