Hotel II Virrey

Top choice hotel in El Burgo de Osma
Image by

This place is a curious mix of old Spanish charm and contemporary flair; public areas remain dominated by heavily gilded furniture, porcelain cherubs, dripping chandeliers and a sweeping staircase. Rates soar on weekends in February and March, when people flock here for the ritual slaughter (matanza) of pigs, after which diners indulge in all-you-can-eat feasts.

The matanza costs €40 to €80 per head – not bad for one of the more unusual dining experiences. There's even a pig museum. The hotel also has a good restaurant, as well as a cafeteria for lighter meals.
