The origin of Zumaia has a curious history. It started life as an old monastery: in mediaeval times its inhabitants, who lived scattered around the Sehatz valley, grew tired of fending off pirate attacks and fortified the centre of town. This is the reason the church of San Pedro looks like a fortress. What to see If the weather's good during your stay, we recommend a dip on the beaches of Itzurun and Santiago. Another stop not to be missed is the House-Museum of the painter Ignacio Zuloaga, containing works by El Greco and Goya. In the town centre you can see the church of San Pedro, in the Basque Gothic style. Don't miss the magnificent altarpiece by Juan de Antxieta. Adventure tourism If you're interested in guided visits or taking a boat trip to see the cliffs (Zumaia is part of the famous Flysch Route), you'll find information at the tourist offices in Zumaia and Deba.
