Tour description

In the following tour we will learn the history of this legendary town. A journey full of battles, romances, fishermen, culture, tradition, gastronomy and anecdotes referring to Hondarribia, the key to Castilla, the first city of Guipúzcoa and one of the pearls that the Guipuzcoan coast guards. Join us and delve into the old town, the Marina district, the Old Port... while we trace the history of the town chronologically.

We will meet at Arma Plaza, a military point located in the historic center of the city, to begin this guided tour of Hondarribia.

A journey through time will reveal the past history of this town and the tense confrontations between the military power and the Civil power that took place around us. We will visit places closely linked to its warlike past, such as the Emperor Carlos V Castle , now converted into a Parador de Turismo, and the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción y del Manzano , emblematic of the town.

We will start a pleasant walk to Plaza Gipuzkoa , one of the most visited places, and then we will go through Nagusia Kalea , the old main street of the town. Here we will discover the houses and palaces of the most important ancient families in the history of Hondarribia, as well as the Ladrón de Guevara house, the Iriarte House, the Zuloaga Palace, the Casadevante Palace or the Town Hall .

Witness of its medieval past is the layout of its old town, with narrow cobbled streets and its wall, with the doors that are still preserved today: the door of Santa María and the door of San Nicolás. We will be surprised by the iconic Baluarte de la Reina , strategically located.

We cannot leave without visiting the La Marina neighborhood , one of the most emblematic points of the city due to its unique marine atmosphere. We will understand why it is part of the vital and main axis of daily life in Hondarribia.

Speaking of the sea and its stories, the time will come to end our tour but, yes, we have prepared a beautiful panoramic view as a climax.
