Hotel Monasterio de San Francisco

A journey back in time in a former Franciscan monastery

A 15th century Franciscan monastery, transformed into a 4-star hotel, is the best option for travellers who value elegance, history and art. The splendour of a bygone era blends with modern luxury in a calm and relaxing setting. The promise of a peaceful holiday is reflected in the 11000 m2 of gardens. Its privileged location, halfway between Seville and Cordoba, will be the perfect starting point to visit the most striking areas of both provinces.

Spaces that make you fall in love

Honesty Bar

We have implemented a self-service drinks system, available all day (from breakfast until 1 am). Guests can serve themselves freely, as if they were at home and enjoy their drink in any of the spaces and cloisters available: the perfect opportunity to enjoy a drink after a trip or day touring around.

Vegetable garden

We are proud to offer fresh and quality foods, many of them grown on the same land that the Franciscan monks once worked. The vegetable garden, stretching 11000 m2 is home to a variety of hundred-year old orange trees, vegetables, greens and aromatic plants. Guests can stroll around it and enjoy the products we grow, trying them in many of our restaurant's dishes.

Idyllic surroundings

Between Cordoba and Seville. Between the Genil and the Guadalquivir. Just a stone's throw from the Sierra de Hornachuelos Natural Park, which is home to the best preserved areas of Mediterranean forest and riversides in the Sierra Morena mountain range.  A true natural paradise awaits you in Palma del Río and its surroundings.

California oranges

The oranges from Palma del Río are of historical importance, which goes beyond their delicious taste and aroma. During the 15th century, two monks from Palma del Río's San Francisco Monastery travelled to California with Father Junípero Serra. The story goes that the monks sent two native oranges to America, which became the origin of Californian oranges.
