Spanish Villages, Beautiful places in Spain: Pasajes San Juan, San Sebastián

Pasajes San juan
Pasajes San Juan
, know as Donibane in Basque, is a small traditional Basque village located in the bay of Pasajes in a natural port 10 kilometres from San Sebastián in the Province of Guipúzcoa.

You can get to this pretty Basque village by car, via Rentería, or by boat via San Pedro.


Pasajes San JuanSan Juan is rich in fishing history and many famous adventurers are said to have set sail from here on their travels.

Where to go: Pasajes San Juan consists of one narrow street which winds its way through the village and ends in a beautiful cliff walk. The street is lined with lots of historical buildings, including the house where the well-known writer Victor Hugo lived.

The village is famous for its architecture with many of the older buildings directly overlooking the sea. The best way to see San Juan is on foot. Visit the small Plaza de Piedad and the larger Plaza Santiago with its characteristic fishermen houses.

Pasajes San JuanWhere to eat: San Juan has several restaurants specializing in seafood dishes and Basque cuisine. We recommend restaurante Casa Cámara, a wonderful spacious restaurant hanging over the blue sea, which serves wonderful fish and seafood and its own fresh lobster farm. Another firm favourite with locals is Txulotxo Restaurant.

Where to stay in Pasajes San Juan: There are no hotels in this beautiful Basque village, so visitors will need to find a hotel in nearby San Sebastian. See our guide to hotels in San Sebastián
