The main festive events in this beautiful coastal municipality take place from September 6 to 11, coinciding with the feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe, September 8, patron saint of the city. The festivities start with the traditional Txupinazo and will offer top-level cultural activities and concerts.


Hondarribia´s Alarde

The main event of the City is the Alarde on September 8, in which the traditional parade led by the Hacheros is celebrated. The origin of this colorful procession comes from a vow made to the Virgin of Guadalupe, its patron saint, for her intercession during the resistance, and subsequent victory over the French army in the siege that the town suffered in 1638.
