Paradores of Spain and Pousadas of Portugal
Vitoria (20km) San Sebastian (103km) Bilbao (74km)
Historical Palace in Countryside
Jan - Dec
NOBLE STONE PALACE The Parador occupies a splendid Renaissance palace, from
which it dominates the natural beauty of the Plains of Álava, the Gorbea
mountain range and the Ullibarri Gamboa reservoir. The surroundings invite you
to wander around the small, pleasant village of Argómaniz, also ideal for
enjoying the beautiful natural spaces. The palace, where Napoleon regained his
strength before attacking the town of Vitoria, boasts the Larrea family coat of
arms on the façade of the building and a wonderful interior atmosphere, with the
spacious living rooms standing out. The rest of the common rooms, floors,
furniture, large chests and other details are enhanced by the charm of its wood,
a noble material which is also present in its unequalled dining room. It offers
traditional recipes, including dishes such as 'perretxikos' (mushrooms), snails
and 'goxua', a sponge cake with cream, whipped cream and caramel.
