Highlights of a Free Tour in Hondarribia

Due to its strategic position right on the Bay of Biscay and on the French border, many armies have tried to conquer this ancient city: from Charlemagne, to various French armies. These skirmishes left an important military legacy in the area that tourists can discover with Free Tours in Hondarribia. The Guadalupe Fortress is a massive 19th-century building that dominates the city’s landscape. In the old town, in addition to the fortified walls, one of the must-see places is Santa Maria Gate, a centuries-old stone arch that was once a gateway to the city. Nearby is the Church of Santa María de la Asunción y del Manzano, an impressive Gothic temple so fortified that it looks more like a fortress than a religious temple. In the 19th century, the city became a popular vacation spot for the European bourgeoisie. So, there are plenty of charming avenues and even old casinos to explore with Hondarribia Free Walking Tours.

Things to Do in Hondarribia

Hondarribia stands on the slope of a charming hill on the left bank of the Bidasoa River; across the river is the French city of Hendaye. Between the two, the river forms a natural border that many tourists cross by boat every day. Since many travelers do not need a passport to cross from Spain to France, this opportunity to enjoy two countries almost at the same time is one of the main attractions of Hondarribia. In addition, foodies from all over the world come to Hondarribia to taste the wonderful dishes that have put the Basque Country in the spotlight of gastronomic innovation and haute cuisine. Sardines, anchovies, crab, and cod are just a few of the wonderful fresh fish available in almost any restaurant.
