Transformed from a 15th-century castle, this enchanting hotel has a noble past and beautiful features including a central courtyard and grand restaurant. Swim in the seasonal pool set in pretty gardens. Transport yourself back in history when you stay at the Parador Zafra which dates from 1437 and was once the home of the Dukes of Feria. The property has a majestic lounge with an open fireplace, as well as the former chapel with its Gothic-Mudéjar turret. The spectacular façade of the Parador Zafra displays 9 towers linked by robust, stone walls topped with turrets. Interiors are beautifully maintained with wrought-iron detailing, high ceilings and furnishings fit for a palace. Enjoy an exquisite meal in the elegant restaurant before relaxing with a night cap in the charming bar. The Parador de Zafra is located in the center of the village so take a stroll through the delightful historic center and visit the shops, authentic bars and characteristic restaurants. The property is 47 mi away from Badajoz while Merida is 40 mi away. Seville Airport is 93 mi away from the property.
