Parador de Fuente Dé, Fuente Dé, Cantabria, Spain
20th Century palace

The new Hotel de Limpias is located on the Eguilor Palace estate, which was the summer headquarters of the Council of Alfonso XIII. The Palace is composed of a great cubic block with four pseudo-towers on each corner of the same height as the main building. Constructed in a rustic style, notable features include the masonry of its walls which contrasts with the corner ashlars and above all the large balconies and a historicist monumental gate with a modernist touch.

The estate has diverse and catalogued woodland (some of the specimens have been given World Heritage status) located in an area of great ecological wealth.

The Hotel has all the services expected of an establishment of this category with the added value of its extensive gardens (55,000 m2), a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, and tennis and paddle courts.

In addition it has ideal facilities for the hosting of all kinds of banquets, social gatherings and business conventions. 

Specialities and traditional dishes

The Parador de Limpias bases its gastronomic offering on its excellent regional produce, both from sea and land.

Some examples of typical local dishes that can be enjoyed are rice with abacanto, bean stews, varieties of cheese, and famous sweets such as Corbatas de Unquera, sabaos pasiegos and pantortillas de Reinosa.
