this was apleasnt surprise. We were coming from Hendaye and from that side the town of Hondarribia is relatively denying. But behind the dark surface is a colourful historic city with many attractive restaurants and shops.

The casual atmosphere of Hondarribia was an unexpected gem on our family Spain trip this summer. If one is looking for a quiet charming place slightly off the beaten path with amazing pintxos and lovely people, Hondarribia is it.

We had a walk in the old town of the small old fishing village and enjoyed the beautiful old houses in the late afternoon. Is really worthy a short walk and a small beer in one of the many pintxo bars around.

first time here beautiful old town, hope to visit again. The old town is very up and down so not ideal if you are a bit unsteady on your feet

Really beautiful old town with the most amazing houses. Lovely square castle walls and a church. Splendid parador in main square.

Originally we’re going to stay in SAn Sebastián - but decided to stay here. Very well maintained historical buildings blended with many restaurants and bars. However you can’t get a main meal before 8pm. Loved it here and would revisit given the opportunity.

Have a special and different experience in Hondarribia. Walk the friendly streets of an old town magic air and have some basque typical pintxos or a monkfish with Txakoli. Unbeatable experience

A lovely old walled town on high battlements. Cobbled streets and old houses. Square with hotels and bars. Parking only possible outside the walls but easy access through the gates or the lift on the seaward side.
