Plaza Mayor 13 49300 Puebla de Sanabria /Zamora (Castilla y León|Spain)
These days, getting to know Puebla de Sanabria requires a visit to the establishments run by the Somoza brothers: first came the La Cartería, managed by Oscar; and afterwards Posada de las Misas, directed by Paco, was opened just meters away. Both brothers participated in the architectural intervention of the latter, where they obtained more noteworthy results. Located on the main square, La Posada de las Misas stands right next to Romanic stone church Santa María de Azogue and near the castle walls. The slate walls of the building hug the sloping terrain of the valley and reflect the layout of the recluse little plaza. But surprise, inside the inn hides a spectacle. A reception area, reduced to minimal expression, opens wide to the bar and restaurant, and leads to the stairway. The tightness of the corridors is liberated upon entering the common spaces and terraces with varying sizes and distribution depending on its orientation. Some spaces peer over the cobble stone plaza –with the punctual chime of the English clock-, while others look out across the landscape of the Sanabria region from gravitational balconies. Still slightly hindered by its lack of experience, this little hotel nevertheless impulses a certain inconformity expressed in the designer décor, which although a bit loud, displays an intelligent use of inexpensive materials.
