Breakfasts, lunches and dinners with a touch of history

The perfect place for savouring the delicious dishes prepared by our chef, the restaurant owes its name to the impressive cistern discovered in the building during its restoration. Used during the Middle Ages to store water, it is almost four metres in depth and holds more than 30 cubic metres. These days it is illuminated behind a glass display, so that hotel guests can admire this piece of history while enjoying our breakfast buffet.

Café

Located next to Plaza Mayor, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or a bite to eat during the day. In the evenings, its dim lighting and relaxing music create the perfect atmosphere for an enjoyable drink. Its entrance is located next to an old medieval fountain. As you go in, there are glass floors that allow us to see the natural water streams that fed the aforementioned fountain.
