Basque Country | Discover Hondarribia
Basque Country / Hondarribia. Hondarribia is a walled city that contains street after cobbled street of beautifully preserved and restored houses, all at the foot of an impressive church.
Hondarribia has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The fortifications that can now be seen, and many of the buildings, were built during the Renaissance. The ‘walled city’ in the centre is a fascinating place. Many of the buildings have elaborate wooden or iron balconies, and carved eaves.
Close to the main square, one of the principal monuments in the town is the castle, called the Palacio de Carlos Quinto and built in the 10th century.
