NEW YORK -- Spain's network of paradors, or historic inns, is set
to grow by eight properties through 2004, increasing capacity by
12% and generating some $27 million in new income.
Paradors typically are housed in renovated historical
structures; for example, Castillo de la Zuda, the home to Parador
Tortosa, was erected by 10th century Muslim rulers.
The new properties include a 68-room hostelry in the 18th
century Ducal Palace of Lerma in Burgos; a 32-room parador in the
Benedictine monastery of San Vicente Do Pino; and the 80-room
Parador de Lorca, set in Murcia's Muslim fortress.
