  • Located in the heart of the old part of San Sebastian, this museum offers everything you need to know about the local culture. 
  • Splendid Museum... very eclectic, we never bored a second and in particular in the part of basque art, and finally in apotheosis paintings of serves in the Church, completely breathtaking. A must see.

  • This Museum of Basque society is distributed in three floors: the first two have several rooms around the cloister of the old convent, including his Church; the third (highest) consists of a single room where the historical art collection is exhibited.

  • They held here the industry club for The International Film festival, and we had the chance to work inside the interior patio. It is a very beautiful building.
  • Very interesting museum, I loved the theatre and interactive displays of the church area. Be sure to get your 2 euro pintxos and drink at the bar afterwards by showing your ticket
  • Great coverage of the basque history with additional exhibitions for a cheap price, the cafe has great pintxos!
  • It is an amazing building with the church and the main part built I to each other. Great for a morning out. The cafe is very expensive though and they don't allow any photography.
  • Must visit place for visitors. A lot of interesting history inside.
