Parador de Argomaniz - 17th Century Renaissance Palace known as the Larreas Palace as well as the Viceroy of Mexico´s Palace. The building has three rectangular-shaped floors built with sandstone ashlar work and rubblework walls. On the top floor, under the eaves of what was formerly the garret, there is a dining room that seats 300 people. Beneath the eaves the original beamwork can be seen, supported by rows of solid wooden pillars, which hold up the impressive main beams.
Renaissance ornaments preserve the nobility of the Parador, where Napoleon regained strength before attacking the town of Vitoria-Gasteiz. It is located in a high vantage point overlooking the most beautiful parts of the plain of Alava, the Gorbea mountians and the Ullibarri Ganboa reservoir and nature reserve.
The dining room offers a wide variety of delicious Basque traditional cuisine. Specialities include perretxikos (a rare local mushroom), snails and goxua, a sponge cake with cream and caramel.
