  • View of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Sanctuary, Hondarribia

A stroll around the charming old quarter full of houses emblazoned with the coats of arms of this seafaring town in the Basque Country is a truly memorable experience. When your reach the beautiful Bay of Txingudi, you won't be able to resist going for a swim in the Cantabrian Sea.Read more...

What to see Exploring the walled town centre is like stepping back in time. The cobbled streets are lined with noble houses, conjuring up images of bygone days when the city had been besieged. In the highest part of town lies Plaza de Armas and, alongside, the impressive castle of Emperor Charles V (now a Parador tourist hotel). After visiting Calle Mayor, the Town Hall and Zuloaga palace, you can explore the seafront district known as La Marina. Grab the chance to take some photos of the colourful houses and then enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. A beach separates this district from the fishing port, which in turn leads to San Telmo castle and Higuer lighthouse, where there are some breathtaking views. Festivities Last but not least, be sure to visit Mount Jaizkibel, home to Guadalupe Fort, a key venue for the fiestas of Hondarribia known as El Alarde. Every year, on 8 September, various companies set out on processions portraying ancient city guilds. Gastronomy Fresh local fish and seafood is used to create succulent dishes such as “kokotxas” (cheek of hake) in green sauce, grilled sea bream, “marmitako” (tuna and potato casserole) and “txangurro” (spider crab). You'll savour every bite!
