Fodor's Review

This 17th-century palace has panoramic views over the Alava plains and retains a powerful sense of mystery and romance, with long stone hallways punctuated by imposing antiques. It's said that Napoleon's forces rested here before attacking Vitoria. Rooms have polished wood floors, and some have glass-enclosed sitting areas or hot tubs. The wood-beam dining room on the third floor makes each meal feel like a baronial feast.

GO!

Major drawback is lack of air conditioning. Can be somewhat difficult to find, and parking is a problem. But go! You will feel like you're in an old baronial mansion.
