The Parador de Gijon is a century-old mill located in Isabel la Católica Park, one of the city of Gijón’s most beautiful spots. There is a pretty lake lending the space a great sense of harmony and tranquillity. Its proximity to San Lorenzo beach and Cimadevilla sailor’s quarter make it an ideal spot to enjoy unforgettable days.
The Old Mill, today the Parador, used to be isolated from the heart of the city. However, Gijón’s expansion has placed it in what is today an excellent area: in the middle of Isabel La Católica Park, and a few short meters from San Lorenzo Beach. The sea air, the surrounding pond and the peaceful, leafy trees envelop the old mill in an idyllic atmosphere which seems almost to transport those who rest within its walls to a Cantabrian oasis of peace and good food.
There is a large, bright, welcoming interior recreating the setting’s warmth in the rooms and spaces, whilst the windows offer a sense of the nearby ocean.
Fabada stew is the top fare in the dining room, although beans come in other dishes. The seafood stew, black sea bream in cider, Asturian stew and hake are also a highlight. Rice pudding, frixuelos (cream-filled crepes) and casadielles (pastries with walnut paste) are part of the Hotel’s dessert selection.
