  • The Kursaal, located on the banks of the Urumea River near its mouth to the sea, is a building of avant-garde architecture, very modern, which contrasts with the rest of the buildings in San Sebastian. It opened in 1999 and is a cultural complex that houses rooms for conventions and exhibitions and a large auditorium, to be the seat of the famous Film Festival of San Sebastian. Unfortunately we could not visit him inside, but I hope to do so in a future visit.

  • The Kursaal is a building that breaks with all the architectural structure of Donostia: is strange but good fit there. It is a moment to modernity and space that is home to the famous Film Festival. I never went, but left me wanting to.

  • I was present within the Congress of Basque industry 4.0 and could look at from the outside and in well the room and the building. At night, it actually acts as it is called by the people as two ice cubes. It is very nice right on the sea.
