Memorably situated in the castle complex way above town is this modern, spick-and-span parador (luxurious state-run hotel, often set in a historic building). Rooms are tip-top, there's an indoor pool and spa and the views are just stunning. Various archaeological fragments are integrated into the hotel, including a reconstructed synagogue next to the car park.
Rates are normally around the €90 mark but tend to be much higher on Saturdays.
