  • Unique building that integrates architecture, Gothic and Renaissance - beautiful cloister and austere church – with a modern and meticulous current enlargement. Very accomplished set. With respect to the content, although simple, very interesting, with paintings of important authors, some remarkable sculpture and splendid frescoes of Sert occupy the walls of their church. All this located in the old part and can be visited in a couple of hours, is a visual and emotional rest for tourists. Frankly recommended

  • This museum is located in an old monastery and a brand new building. The exhibits about Basque history are well made even though more text could have been in English. Stroll through and enjoy. Do not ...  more »
  • The San Telmo, that against the old monastery was built takes you to the history of the Basque country. In addition, there are from time to time special exhibitions, which are definitely worth. Also the old monastery is well worth

  • 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.
