A hidden jewel in Basque Country, stumbled upon this little town which I noticed from a distance; a mount with an old medieval town on top. We got there and were enchanted to the point of getting us a hotel room and stay the night....More

The historic center worth the visit to walk around. From the castle to the sea side it is a nice place to be.

I travel miles out of my way to come here. The old town and the town centre are superb. Close to the lovely harbour. For me the best tapas in Spain.

The cobblestone streets and gorgeous old buildings hold a majesty that i have rarely seen on my travels. Hondarribia will forever have a place in my heart.

Such beautiful stonework that has been well maintained. The town is quite hilly so the fortress was built with the hills to provide food protection from the sea. Very cool Town.

Its small but definitely worth spending an hour or so before lunch/dinner walking around the old town. You can end your visit to Hondarribia with some tapas on the main street.

Hondarribia is a paradise for tapas. I would spend the evening enjoying the food and wine on offer at the different restaurants. A couple of hours would be enough to see the old town plus take in a coffee in the square... More
