PALACIO TORRE DE RUESGA IS NATIONAL HERITAGE
Our Palace is located in the stunning Cantabria Alto Asón region, where it has stood since the 17th century, surrounded by lush forests and the Natural Park Collados del Asón.
It offers top quality accommodation, restaurant, swimming pool, modern spa facilities with free jacuzzi and sauna, as well as free Wi-Fi throughout the entire building.
Renovated in 2017, the Palace is elegantly decorated with stone walls and exquisite antique furniture. The Palace's restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner offering local products.
Palacio Torre de Ruesga was designed and executed in 1610 by renowned architect Diego de Sisniega, who had previously worked at the construction of the Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). With his work in Ruesga, Sisniega established what would later become the ideal prototype for all noble houses and palaces in Cantabria.
The Palace has recently been renovated with the utmost respect for its rich history, preserving all the details and grandeur of the 17th century. The exquisite frescoes that painter León Criach y Durán completed in 1886 have also been restored and decorate the walls and ceilings of the main salon, the library, and the entertaining room.
Today’s interior decoration of the Palace is a contemporary and luxurious take on the splendour of the original furnishings. All rooms have been designed with a meticulous attention to detail that emulates the magnificence with which its original owners surrounded themselves.
