Tourism destinations


Bathed by the Bay of Biscay, Hondarribia is located in the Northwest of the historical territory of Gipuzkoa. It belongs to the Bidasoa Beherea region and is placed at the foothill of Jaizkibel Mountain (545m).

We can begin our visit enjoying the amazing view of Txingudi Bay, with the neighbouring Hendaye in front of us. After that pleasurable view we will notice its huge beach, where we can go for a relaxing walk.

Old town of Hondarribia

Moreover, Hondarribia houses many historic treasures that give the village a special charm. In the old part of the town we will enjoy its stone-paved streets and the walls surrounding it, its houses with coats of arms and singular buildings such as the Castle of the Emperor Carlos V. Afterwards, we can visit the neighbourhood of La Marina, an emblematic and typical spot in the municipality with fishermen's colourful houses, restaurants, and typical bars of "pintxos" with tables outside.

The aforementioned characteristics make of Hondarribia an ideal tourist destination, with a very wide and attractive offer of hotels and gastronomy anytime during the year.

If we decide to visit Hondarribia in early September we will be familiar with one of its deeply-rooted traditions: Virgen de Guadalupe festivity on Sept. 8th, when the "Alarde" (Arms Parade) is held. A parade takes place formed by several companies representing the ancient neighbourhoods or city guilds.
