Just an hour and a half from the Spanish capital, what once was an impregnable bastion rises between two hills, embraced by the Cega and Vadillo rivers. The Village of Pedraza enjoys various centuries of history, as it functioned as a fortress and marketplace. It is here where a singular tavern is found, which houses Samantha Vallejo-Nágera’s newest project: Casa Taberna.

Samantha’s dream is today a reality, for her ambition has taken her to open her very own restaurant alongside her husband, Pedro Aznar. Following the restoration of the former Taberna de Mariano, with a 200-year history, Casa Taberna comes to life as a hotel and restaurant which now offers a unique experience that takes us on a trip through time.
