Museums & theatres
espite its population of only 180,000, San Sebastian is one of the world’s most renowned cultural capitals. In this cosmopolitan corner of the Bay of Biscay you will find museums, cinemas, theatres, galleries and exhibitions to suit all tastes.
Iconic institutions such as the San Telmo Museum, the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and the Aquarium are just a few minutes away from our accommodation.
The San Telmo Museum illustrates the evolution of Basque society. Inaugurated in 1912, it is the oldest museum in the Basque Country, “a space for […]understanding the present and building the future from knowledge of the past”.
The Victoria Eugenia Theatre was the stage for the San Sebastian International Film Festival until 1999. In Spanish neo-Renaissance and neo-Plateresque style, it has been the venue for the premiere of important editions of operas, zarzuelas and theatrical works of all genres.
The San Sebastián Aquarium is a celebration of the city’s maritime heritage, and a showcase of the many amazing species of the Bay of Biscay.
