Parador de Úbeda becomes a museum

At midday today, the Parador de Úbeda in Jaén province, becomes the sixth parador in Spain and second in Andalucia to be musealised so that customers and, now, visitors can enjoy the facility.

The head of the Paradores de España network, Miguel Martínez, and the Mayor of Ubeda, Marcelino Sánchez, will officially open the new Parador-Museo at 12:00 on Wednesday.

The other paradors to be converted have been: Santo Estevo in Orense, Hostal Dos Reis Católicos in Santiago de Compostela, Granada, Oropesa in Toledo and Cardona in Barcelona.

The Parador de Úbeda is located in Plaza de Vázquez de Molina in the historical centre of the city, along with the Sacra Capilla del Salvador, the Palace of Marqués de Mancera and the Vázquez Molina Palace. It was declared a Human Heritage site by UNESCO.

The musealisation project is expected to extend to over 50 paradors in Spain considered to be artistically or historically important.
