known as Hondarribia in the Basque language, is on the Cantabrian coast
near San Sebastián in the Province
of Guipúzcoa. It is the last place you get to before crossing the Spanish
border into France.
Aswell as being a traditional Basque fishing village it is increasingly a popular tourist destination due its beautiful little beach promenade with views across the Txingudi bay to France.
Where to go: Visitors to Hondarribia should visit the picturesque marina, the historic quarter. It is also worth visiting the Parador of Hondarribia which was once a 10th century fortress.
The neighbourhood where many of Fuenterrabia´s fishermen live consists of traditional dwellings brightly painted in different colours - historically they used the paint left over from painting the fishing boats.
