  • Musée très impressionnant, ne manquez pas la petite animation expliquant l'histoire de San Sebastián dans l'église !
  • Free on a Tuesday (I think) ... really nice to escape the heat of the sun for a few hours
  • 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!
