Parador de Zamora. Got the last room. Lovely large comfortable room with classic Spanish interior. Huge bathroom. Dark and shuttered and quiet. Even though there was a wedding in the main courtyard we heard nothing. Are diner in dining room. VG.
€100 incl bfast.

... to the nines. As best as we could tell, they were just out walking the streets and sitting in the cafés enjoying a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Where the folks in the Basque area were extremely welcoming, the people of Zamora were cold, and at often times downright rude. This is a pretty big city, and we were ...
