Guadalupe is the home of the Virgin of Guadalupe – both the revered statue of the Blessed Mother – and of the still-living legend of how she came to be there. The Real Monasterio de Santa Maria de Guadalupe is well worth a visit. Take the guided tour – they run every hour or so. If you are out from the Parador Guadalupe (official name is Parador Zurbaran) in the early morning, go sit on the stone benches near the front steps of the monastery – you may be lucky enough to hear the monks doing their Gregorian chant off in some far, cloistered chamber.

- Area Info
Once a primary pilgrimage destination and known as the "Spanish Vatican," Guadalupe is now a town slumbering, simple and sweet, in its own peaceful backwater of nearly forgotten memories.
This is a place for resting and contemplation – and leisurely strolls through the narrow streets that radiate out from the central plaza in front of the grand monastery – and an evening bottle of wine while sitting at an outdoor cafe table on the monastery plaza.
The Parador Guadalupe is very nice – with wonderful views over to the monastery. Wander down into the Parador’s gardens and orchard. Sit out on your private balcony near dusk and you’ll be fascinated by the swooping, high-speed play of the hundreds of swallows that come out to feed.
