Parador Hotel Argomaniz
The Parador of Argomaniz occupies a splendid Renaissance palace, overlooking the
beautiful plains of Alava and the Gorbea mountain range.
Napoleon rested in the Palace before attacking the town of Vitoria/Gasteiz during the Peninsular wars. The coat of arms of the Larrea family who owned the palace at that time is one facade of the building.
The interior has remarkable noble rooms with much wood evident in the floorings and ceilings, wooden furniture and chests.
This Parador has a total of fifty three twin bedded rooms and two easy access bedrooms all having
satellite television, telephone, mini bar and safe.
The Argomaniz Parador is able to have business conferences for up to 270 persons.
The Parador group serve the regional dishes in all their restaurants and there is always a gluten free menu.
The regional specialties of this Parador are:
"Perretxikos" which are mushrooms;
It is the area of fine wines with Rioja Alavesa being the centre of the Rioja wine producing area.
August is the month for the festivals in the area. August 4 is the date on which is celebrated the Feast of the Virgin Blanca of Vitoria/Gasteiz. After the religious celebrations the partying continues long into the night.
It is the turn of San Sebastian on the 8th, when the "Semana Grande" (great week) is celebrated. On the 15th the the fun moves to Bilbao who have their own "Semana Grande".
The reception of the Parador can arrange various outdoor activities with a few days notice. These are usually based on the reservoirs of Gorbea, the Natural Park of Garayo or the Valderejo Natural Park which is a nature reserve.
The Parador Argomaniz is approximately 76 kms from Bilbao and the famous Guggenheim museum, designed by the American architect Frank O. Gehry.

|My wife and I spent 5 wonderful nites at Argomaniz last Oct. The archetecture, the furneshings,the setting, the entire staff, and above all the supurb cuisine were all outstanding. And we would say the same for the other 3 Paradores we stayed in during our splendid month in Euskadi and Northern Spain.|

|Nous avons été accueillis de façon excellente et avons profité d'une chambre très spacieuse avec une vue magnifique. Le repas du soir ainsi que le petit déjeuner étaient parfaits et d'un prix tout à fait abordable. Le personnel s'est montré très aimable et très efficace. Le Parador d'Argomaniz est idéalement situé pour découvrir l'Avala. Séjour parfait.|

|We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Argomaniz. Everything was excellent except the weather - it was the first snow of the year. The restaurant was especially good, service and food. We will probably stay there again, thank you.|
