Atrio is the Spanish word for atrium, a central element of traditional Mediterranean architectural design that dates back to antiquity and is the metaphorical heart of the family home in the Iberian world. Also known as the interior patio or inner courtyard, it is the culminating point of all pathways that lead from the realms of the intimate to the celebration of shared experience. Atrio is the spatial embodiment of the encounter between host and guest and between personal retreat and social interaction.
Juan Antonio Pérez and José Polo, the team behind the Atrio experience, have created a new international culinary landmark in the historic city of Cáceres, a singular place situated at the crossroads of Iberian culture and history. Their tireless quest to offer their guests an ever-higher level of culinary excellence and hospitality has made Atrio a legendary destination for the most discriminating gourmet traveller.
