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. The rest of the common rooms, floors, furniture, large chests and other details are enhanced by the charm of its wood, a noble material which is also present in its unequalled dining room.

Founded by the Navarrese king Sancho Abarca in the 10th c., this Parador rises up in a beautiful castle which maintains the structure of a medieval fortress in a monumental, coastal setting. Its defensive appearance, with thick walls, conceals an interior recovered with mastery. The immense, naked stone of the courtyard stands out, as do the beautiful views of the French coast and the sea, which the guest can contemplate from the splendid terrace or from some bedrooms. Beautiful nooks and crannies, spaces adorned with arches, wrought iron and coffered ceilings envelop the traveller in an atmosphere of indescribable beauty. Lances, cannons and armour make up the interior decoration, offering an air of elegance in a most comfortable atmosphere.
