parador hotels spain – history
Origins of the parador spain go back to 1910 when the Spanish Government assigned the Marquis de la Vega Inclán the task of creating a hotel infrastructure.
In 1926, he started a hotel in the Gredos Mountains – making its wonderful landscape accessible to tourism.
King Alfonso XIII of Spain was very enthusiastic – he, personally, chose the location.
Construction was completed on 9 October 1928 and the first of the paradors was opened – the Parador de Gredos.
Efforts were then channelled into perfecting the original idea, making use of selected historical/artistic monuments and beautiful landscapes for the establishment of further paradores of spain.
