ZZZ - No Longer Affiliated - Quinta Real - Zacatecas, Mexico (8973)

Zacatecas, No data

You will know grandeur and welcoming hospitality from the moment you arrive at Quinta Real, as you are handed a refreshing glass of sparkling wine. You will soon discover the truly extraordinary nature of this entirely unique resort, built into the restored grandstand of the 19th-century San Pedro bullfighting ring. A stroll to the Suites Patio fountain brings you to your elegant residence, a graceful retreat adorned with antiques and original works of art. When it’s time for venturing out, the city of Zacatecas invites you to drift through its intricate labyrinth of narrow, cobblestone streets, lined with majestic colonial-era buildings of beautifully preserved pink stone and delicate wrought-iron balconies. When you return to Quinta Real, as you savor authentic Mexican cuisine at La Plaza or enjoy a cocktail at the El Botarel Bar, enjoy views of the original bullring and magnificent décor. The uniqueness of this hotel begins with its location in one of Mexico’s highest-altitude cities (8,000 feet). But what makes Quinta Real Zacatecas truly unusual is the remarkable ingenuity with which the character and beauty of the original structure have been preserved. The hotel is built into the grandstand of the restored 19th-century San Pedro bullfighting ring, which witnessed its last corrida in 1975. This extraordinary restoration effort extends to the restaurant and bar located at the edge of El Ruedo, a former bullring now converted into a colonial-style, cobblestone patio, landscaped with abundant flowers. The resort is also a UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Site.
