10th century castle situated on the Bidasioa Estuary

The hotel occupies a beautiful castle built by the king of Navarre, Sancho Abarca, in the 10th century. The building still retains the appearance and atmosphere of an original medieval fortress and provides a magnificent backdrop to the coastal location. The thick-walled exterior of the fortress belies its beautifully renovated interior.

Do not miss the immense, natural beauty of the stonework in the courtyard or the stunning sea views from the terrace and some of the bedrooms, along the French coast. 

Allow yourself to be drawn into the beautiful atmosphere of the castle as you explore its hidden nooks and crannies, wandering through its arches and admiring the wrought-iron work and coffering that adorn the walls and ceilings. Spears, cannons, and suits of armour bring an air of elegance to the comfortable surroundings. 

The Parador does not have a restaurant, however there are excellent places to eat locally (ask in the Parador). A buffet breakfast is included in the price of the room for guests staying at the Parador.

Unique room - Reina María Cristina

The Reina Maria Cristina room is the most spacious and representative at the Parador of Hondarribia. The Suite has a 2x2 metre four poster bed. The large stone vault lends the room a touch of majesty which, added to the stunning views out over Hondarribia and the River Bidasoa basin enjoyed from the window, will make your stay unforgettable, reliving the history of a 10th-century building. The height means it can house a cosy living room in the upper part, providing peace and quiet. Famous figures such as Admiral Oquendo, the Duke of Alba, Garcilarso de la Vega, the Marquess of Spínola, Sofía Loren and Natalia Figueroa have borne witness to the historical air at this palace-turned-charming hotel.
