Book now

12th-13th century castle & convent on a hilltop in historic Teruel in Aragón, Spain

Built on the hilltop called the Cumbre de Cerro Pui-Pinos, this 12th-13th century castle-convent became the seat of the Order of Calatrava in 1179.

Dominating the landscape of the Maestrazgo, it conserves the keep, the bell tower-sacristy and the part reconverted into an 18th c. Aragonese palace.

Gothic walls, plateresque tomb and baroque façade are inserted into an interior with soft, red and green coloured shades, adorned with Spanish wood in furniture and beams. The hotel also features a peaceful garden. A good number of trips and activities related to adventure sports can be organized from the Parador.
