Take the scenic route to the San Telmo Museoa, by following the promenade from the port around Mount Urgull, the wooded peak crowned with a statue of Jesus on the eastern edge of the bay. The museum’s new facade — a stark gray wall pocked with holes through which greenery sprouts — mimics the natural rocky surroundings but sharply contrasts with the adjoining building, a refurbished 16th-century former Dominican convent where the permanent collection of Basque art and historical artifacts is displayed.
Very interesting and informative museum containing artifacts and displays about the Basque people and region. We spent nearly 3 hours here without realizing it. Great place!
Beautiful museum with a lot of Basque history, stunning paintings and on certain occasions showings of traditional Basque dances.

Very nice and entertaining. Audio guides are available in English, which is good because all the text is in Spanish
One of the beat museums I've ever visited!
