Exponent of the famous Basque gastronomy
The Parador de Argómaniz is the only exponent within the public hotel chain of the internationally renowned Basque gastronomy.

The fact that it is located inland makes meat and vegetables gain strength.

A natural getaway in the Larrea Palace
The building, which dates back to 1712, occupies the Palacio de los Larrea, whose coat of arms can be seen on the façade. Its strategic location has made it a crossroads for different cultures: through here passed Romans, Christians, Moslems, Jews and even caravans from Flanders and France.
The Parador was also a Descalced Carmelite convent before being converted into a palace, and during the Peninsular War it was used as a headquarters for French troops. Legend has it that Napoleon planned the attack on Vitoria at this very place.
