EUSKADI: HONDARRIBIA

After the three days we spent in Santander, Comillas, Santillana del Mar and Bilbao, we arrived at Gipuzkoa, where we visited:

  • Donostia (San Sebastián)
  • Getaria
  • Zarautz
  • Hondarribi (Hondarribia) 

Below I would like to show you some pictures of Hondarribia, a beautiful village I liked a lot. The old town of Hondarribia is really nice, with lovely squares and colourful houses inside the well preserved city walls.

We spent one day in Hondarribi, where we visited:
  • Marina and Beach
  • Bidasoa River
  • Guipuzkoa square
  • Streets of the Old City

The Beach of Hondarribi, between mountains and the Bidasoa river, belongs to the leisure area, together with the Sports Center and the Marina
