Five hotels in Spain to be scared on Halloween

Are you already planning Halloween night? Well, it’s about time you did it! And it is that the most terrifying party of the year is just around the corner. This festival of Celtic origin is very typical of the United States, although in recent years it has spread throughout the world, including Spain. In fact, there are many who celebrate costume parties in which elements of terror are not lacking.

A good plan for Halloween is to spend a night in a scary hotel. We refer to those lodgings that are shrouded in mystery and in which ghosts are said to live. Considering that on the eve of All Saints’ Day the spirits roam freely among us, doesn’t that seem like the best time to sleep (if you can) in a hotel of this type? Today at Vuela Viajes we propose some hotels in Spain to be scared on Halloween. Can you come with us?

Parador de Cardona, Barcelona

First of all, we want to tell you about the Parador de Cardona, which is located about 100 kilometers from the city of Barcelona. It is a medieval castle that is in an excellent state of preservation and is located in a privileged location: on top of a promontory, offering wonderful views of the Salino Valley and the Cardener River Valley. It is said that in room 712 a medieval knight and a sobbing maiden can be seen wandering. In addition, it seems that the furniture moves on its own and comes together in the center of the room.

Parador de Limpias, Cantabria

Another parador that gives a lot of “yuyu” is that of Limpias, which is located in Cantabria. It is a building commissioned by Count Albox in 1890. Some parapsychologists claim that three spirits live here: the count’s niece, a blonde woman named Margarita who often plays the piano in the library room; your young son; and a servant of the count. Beyond ghosts, the Parador de Limpias is a quiet and beautiful place where it is worth spending the night.

Hotel Meliá Zaragoza

In the city of Zaragoza we can also find a quite terrifying hotel. It is the Hotel Meliá Zaragoza, which in 1979 suffered a terrible fire that killed 78 people. As they say, inexplicable events occur in different corners of the establishment. Room 510 deserves a special mention, in which the lights turn off and on by themselves, unanswered phone calls are received, shadows are seen under the door, guests feel sensations of suffocation …

Cat’s Hostel, Madrid

The Cat’s Hostel could not be missing from this list, a hotel in the heart of Madrid, specifically, at number 6 Cañizares street, next to Puerta del Sol, which in the last 10 years has been for sale four times. something that is not surprising if we take into account that its owners claim that paranormal things happen inside the building. Apparently, the previous building had been demolished after a fire, while in the adjoining church seven monks were killed.

Hotel La Perla, Pamplona

the Pearl
Finally, we want to talk about Hotel La Perla, which is located in Pamplona. Built in 1881, it is considered the second oldest hotel in Spain. In addition, it is important to bear in mind that important personalities have stayed here: Alfonso XIII, Pablo Sarasate, Ernest Hemingway, Orson Wells … According to legend, a ghost lives here that roams the corridors at night.
