I've talked about Parador hotels countless of times on the blog. It's a topic that gets me really excited because I consider it a genius business model. Turning historical landmarks and religious heritage into hotels is one of the best ideas ever!

My husband and I are Paradores biggest fans and whenever we can we eat or stay at one. There are almost 100 Parador hotels in Spain and our aim is to visit every one of them. To share my love for Paradores I've put together a list of 20 incredible Parador hotels to travel to in 2020 which are absolutely bucket-list-worthy.

Here’s a look at 20 Parador hotels you should have your eye on for 2020.
