Castillo De La Zuda
TravelPod Member ReviewsCastillo De La Zuda Tortosa
I can't believe I got to stay in a castle. This parador chain managed to maintain the castle's charm while keeping it just modern enough for the 21st century guest. While the view from the castle isn't much, who cares! It's a castle.
Great rooms (decor), great breakfast included.

The campsite was very good but because it is surrounded by flooded rice fields and salt marsh it was plagued by mosquitos. We did get too many bites but they are annoying!
One thing we did do on the way to Eucaliptus beach was give Florance a much needed wash. We had filled up with fuel and got a deal on an automated car wash. With hindsight it was a bit of a gamble, but she came out clean and undamaged.
... and they did not stop.
The water in this town was incredible though and for three days we swam in the Mediterranean, barbequed and relaxed under the shade of huge trees. We also cranked out Doris’ awning, an outdoor table and some chairs. With our pot of herbs and mini- BBQ, we are all set for this long European summer that’s ahead of us.
Our next stop is the highly anticipated capital of Catalunya – Barcelona.
... show; but we were not that fussed on going to another.
It was a long walk into town and we were very surprised afterwards to see how far we had come! You don't tend to notice as much when you are chatting away. We all agreed a taxi back was the better option. We're looking forward to exploring Barcelona tomorrow.
Here are those ...
... birds (the flamingos were nesting in the island offshore at this time of year and nowhere to be seen).
After driving what seemed forever, we finally came upon a point where we could park the car and walk along the beach. We now proudly boast that we took a toe-dip in the Mediterranean. Beautiful lapping waves and warm water.
... for the highway. 16.5 euros later we are on AP-2 and heading south at 120 kpm. It took us no time to reach the town and the Parador de Tortosa, a beautiful converted castle at the top of the town.
Once settled in, Sue reminded me that we hadn't eaten a meal since noon and it was now 8:00. We pulled out all of our wonderful food and chowed down as we sat on our balcony enjoying the sights and listening to the noisy birds! ...
