The Palacio de Justicia court building is monumental in design and is an intrinsic part of the Ensanche area, the zone just outside the old walls of San Sebastián where the city first grew. This is also where you will find most of the administrative buildings for the entire province, most of which were built at the beginning of the 20th century. This particular building was constructed in 1911 by the architect Gurruchaga. The facade is made with masonry stone, while the rest in concrete. It is eclectic in style though with clear classical influences. Its most outstanding feature is the pediment and gigantic columns protruding from the central body, seemingly to protect the entrance.
