There are live chickens in the cathedral at Santo Domingo de la Calzada in La Rioja, Spain, because legend holds that two cooked chickens stood up and crowed to protest the innocence of a pilgrim about to be executed for theft. But we found that the parador next to the cathedral also participates in a deal that’s really something to crow about. These fairly luxe state-run hotels have listed rates of 150–250 euros a night ($210-$350), but many (including this gorgeous building) participate in a 5-night deal. Purchase 5 nights at any of the paradors (mix and match) for 103 euros ($144) each. We’ve met a number of Americans who are taking advantage of the deal.
