Inside the Parador de Carmona, a graceful Moorish courtyard with vaults and columns combines with antique Spanish furnishings to create a four-star experience reminiscent of times gone by. (From: 10 Beautiful Castle Hotels).
Paradors in Spain...converted historic buildings run as inns and hotels by the Spanish government. May 2011, I stayed in a 14th century Moorish fortress, a 1700's town hall, and a 16th century palace. Parador restaurants serve authentic Spanish cuisine. Prices are very reasonable!
