Boutique hotels in Zamora

Castille and Leon

Time seems to have halted in the ancient kingdom of Zamora, where sprawling vineyards, Romanesque churches and secluded rural hideaways still have pride of place. Built around an eye-catching domed cathedral, the city’s old town is a pleasure to explore on foot. Beyond its walls, the region’s nature reserves and family-run estates beckon: explore hilltop hamlets, rolling valleys and entrancing nature reserves.

When to go

Summers can be sweltering. Visit in spring for gentler climes and a chance to witness the Holy Week’s impressive processions, or in autumn for the grape harvesting festivals.

Food & Drink

No meal is complete without a glass of Toro wine: robust, rich and well structured, it stands up to Zamora’s rich and hearty fare. The region’s cuisine makes the most of local produce such as wild trout and foraged mushrooms. Ancient Romans made a pit stop here for a taste of pulpo a la sanabresa, a delectable octopus dish that’s just as moreish today.

Not to miss

Scan the skies for a glimpse of majestic golden eagles in the protected Arribes del Duero Natural Park.

Nightlife

Perfect for lazy evening strolls, the sleepy city has few late-night hangouts to speak of. For a tipple wander to Calle Los Herreros, south of the Old Town, where a sip of local vintages comes with generous helpings of tapas.

Where to stay in Zamora

A landscape of winding valleys, rocky hillsides and luxuriant vegetation, the Arribes del Duero Natural Park straddles Spain and Portugal. You’ll find indulgent boutique digs in the region’s wine-producing estates.

How to get there

An hour’s drive away, Valladolid Airport serves seasonal flights to domestic destinations. 90 minutes away on the train, Madrid has better international links.
