Fuenterrabía Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Fuenterrabía

From Fuenterrabía (the Basque name, Hondarribia, means 'sand ford'), you can see the mouth of the Bidasoa where it enters the Bay of Biscay, as well as the French border. Cliffs and coves line the coast in this tourist and residential town close to Cape Higuer, the Bay of Biscay's easternmost cape. This place also marks the beginning or end of the famous Senda Pirenaica (GR 11) walking track, depending on where you started from. Hondarribia is famous for its beaches and old town, which was declared a national monument because of its exceptional group of emblazoned buildings. Closer to the sea, in the Marina fishing district, you can walk along the promenade and jetty. The working class origins of this very lively part of town can still be seen in the design of the buildings, and there are many traditional and brightly coloured fishermen's houses.
