not quite clear on the concept

You come here to live like people did in the Middle Ages, but in a four- or five-star hotel.

Rodolfo Lazarich Gener, an economist from Cádiz, quoted in Sunday’s NYT in a piece on the paradores in Spain -- a network of convents, castles and monasteries that were converted to hotels shortly before Franco blew through.

Whadya think the monks liked better: the prix fixe feed or the day spa?

(And whadya wanna bet that Rodolfo wouldn’t have a clue what was going on if someone threatened to “get medieval on his ass”?)
