The Parador de Hondarribia dominates the town, in one of the most elegant villas of the Basque country, in its upper part. The 10th century castle is located on the Bidasoa estuary, which is the natural border with France. About 20 km east of the capital, San Sebastián, Hondarribia is located at the North-Eastern corner of the province of Guipúzcoa, which flows into the Bay of Biscay, where you will find beautiful beaches and fishing villages.

Founded by the King of Navarre, Sancho Abarca, the Castle preserves the structure of authentic medieval fortress into a monumental and coastal environment.
