Noble Renaissance Palace looking over the plains of Álava in Argómaniz, Spain

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.
