A hotel like no other - staying at a Spanish Parador

Have you ever dreamt about sleeping in a castle, palace, ancient monastery or all of the above? Incantato Tours can make your dream come true. Have a look at the Paradores website featuring very unique accommodations for travelers in Spain, called Paradores. As we continue to finalize the journey for the San Marino Chamber Choir, their family and friends, we will do our very best to include at least a night and hopefully more in this truly magical places.
A very likely "candidate" is the Parador de Olite which is en-route to Barcelona, in a charming walled town that features also a prime performance venue for a wonderful choir like SMCC.
