Ermita de San Telmo is a church located in Zumaia, a coastal town in Gipuzkoa Region, in the Basque Country. It is in the upper part of the town, just in front of the sea. The church, which was probably built in the Middle Ages, is little and it was closed, when we visited the region in the middle of october. However the views of the sea and the Algorri Peak are wonderful. Really you can enjoy with flysch (prehistoric rocks typical in the coast of Basque Country). So, the church ok, the views great.

If you visit Basque Country, you can not avoid this place. There is a nice walk untill the cliff final and the view from there are awesome! Also the location of the church makes that very special.

The ermita is within walking distance of Zumaia's center. The building itself is quaint. The views spectacular.

This chapel was not too far from the beach. It stands out on a rock formed by the Flysh. Right behind it is a large place with Flysh formations as well and all that for free. When I looked over the rocks I found more Flysh formations on the beach. It’s everywhere!

Even though it was raining, I was surprised to see so many tourists! They were admiring the Ermita and the Flysh formations.

I was able to take pictures inside the church, thanks to an opening at the door. This place is dedicated to the sailors. Inside I noticed a wooden altar in rococo style and a wooden statue of the Madonna and Child. Right next to them were two oars. The benches were made of wood as well.

What a great experience!

It was the highlight of my day! Quite worthwhile!

It was that famous that I was expecting more.. but it was easy to reach and it had stunning views. You can't leave Zumaia without passing by.

Ermita de San Telmo in the Basque region of Spain is very close to old town and well worth the climb for the spectacular views.

If you are visiting San Sebastian, you must visit the chapel. It is only 30 minutes from San Sebastian.

Perhaps one of the most famous ermitas all around Spain due to the famous film. The spectacular views make this place special. Appart from this, the place is within a walking distance from the old town

I was unable to enter the Hermitage, but the view from it is spectacular. There is a path from the hermitage out onto the rock outcrop that affords an equally impressive view.
