Hotel description

Old Dominican Monastery of Our Lady of Pity (Nuestra Señora de la Piedad) was founded in 1509 by the Bishop of Calahorra, Don Juan de Velasco. It is a Historic and Artistic Monument of Catholic Monarchs and Plateresque style, built in masonry stone with important ornaments and with a carpentry or woodwork ceiling. The Hospedería (=rooming house) occupies part of what used to be the Saint Nicholas School (=Colegio de San Nicolás) and the Ladie´s School of Our Lady of the Pity (= Nuestra Señora de La Piedad), a true work of Art in its old times due to its enormous dimensions and its slender architecture. Located in one of the best places of the village, it has been accurately called the Aranjuez of Rioja. After a careful restoration and decoration work done by the designer Pedro Ortega and his team, fifteen well furnished huge rooms open their doors to us. Don´t forget to pay attention to the original decorative elements ( precious stones set in forged metal, singular washbasins, mirrors, curtains, Lamps, paintings, Trampantojos (=paintings on doors and in the walls). The big walls of our hotels shelter spaces and corners that make us go back in time and enjoy ourselves with the visual effects that its original decoration offers us.
