Overview

This is an old fishing area, where the entire ancient village of Hondarribia used to be before the official foundation of the town. Today, the two main streets there, San Pedro and Santiago, form an urban grouping with a social atmosphere between the locals and tourists who pass through, visiting the bars and restaurants. There are also some interesting features, such as the ruins of Magdalena church, Solados-Samo house with a coat of arms and typical wood and brick structure and Zeria house, built in the same way as the former but with an inscription on one of its beams: "Zeria 1574." At one end of the grouping, the old Hondarribia port is situated on the left bank of the Bidasoa river, closed in by the hexagonal wall built in 1895.
