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.
