Posada de las Monjas

From the north side of El Jardin (the side opposite La Parroquia), go west on Canal 2 blocks. When you walk under the elevated bridge (Calle Quebrada) you'll be just meters from Posada de las Monjas which will be on the right hand side. Fort Knox parking.

Sound your bike's horn. It's difficult to get off a big bike on the downhill, and they're used to the sound of the horn to know they need to open the huge wooden doors to the parking area.

If you're lucky, Santiago will greet you and take your luggage. Ask for Room 37.

Trice,
This is excellent info.

However, if you walk under the bridge, why will you need parking ?

Fair point. I'm using El Jardin as a reference point. And by the time I'm in front of La Parroquia, my bike has long since been parked and cooled off, and I'm walking either back to the hotel or to Tio Lucas' place.

La Posada is so easy to find once you've been there a time or five, a straight shot to Canal, left turn, done.

Carl has first-hand experience in paying for such things based upon his first class hospital stay in Parral and ambulance ride to Chihuahua for the medevac flight home.

I'm guessing the rooftop bar might have been JD's room that night.

Actually, there wasn't much going on up there so we went back down to the main bar and watched some of the NFL playoffs.

Towards the end of the trip, Schizzman and I watched the Superbowl at the Camino Real in Saltillo.

Yah Mon!

Just providing Carl with a little entrez-vous to respond with his own witty repartee.
