Hondarribia has one of the most beautiful spanish old towns. To access the old part of the city, we recommend that you enter through one of the two main gates as this area is walled. One of the two gates is called Puerta de Santa María and its entrance has the statue of a "Hatxero" (Representation of a soldier who worked in the fortification).
Once you have entered the old town, you will arrive at the main street where the town hall is located. In this area we recommend that you try their famous pintxos, accompanied by a txakoli or cider glass. Nearby is the Gothic Santa María de la Asunción y del Manzano Church.
A few meters from the church, you will find one of the squares with more history of the city. Plaza de Armas is where the old castle of Charles V used to be. There you will also find the tourist office if you need more information. Another must-see square is Plaza Guipuzkoa, in medieval style.
Once you have left the walls, head towards Marina district where you can see many flowers, balconies with Basque motifs and many taverns and restaurants. Here we recommend that you go to lunch or dinner as there are the best local food. One of the most popular and beautiful areas of the Marina district is the Fishermen's Guild, founded in 1361.
Finally, we advise you to walk along the promenade and even approach the beach and take a good dip (if you dare). You can also see Mariñel boat, the last wooden boat of the local fleet.
