Give your partner a dinner, a concert by your favorite artist and an unforgettable night in a spectacular accommodation
The Paradores de Turismo network has put the batteries to recover the time lost during the pandemic, and for this it has prepared a unique experience in which it combines culture, tourism, gastronomy and heritage so that we can enjoy a weekend as a couple of those who do not forget
The package that it sells under the name Caprichos Musicales begins at sunset with a welcome drink as a prelude to the concert starring one of the great figures of our music. Later, we will be served a tasting dinner designed exclusively for each event by the gastronomic team of the Parador that we have chosen, and as a finishing touch, we will have a room prepared with great care so that we can spend a night surrounded by the history that is hidden in each of these accommodations, unique in the world.
There are eight Paradores that are joining this initiative, so we can choose from all of them the one that we most want and that suits our musical tastes and the environment that surrounds them. We tell you what they are with their dates.
