San Sebastian

Quincena Musical (The Classical Music Fortnight)


quincena musical

In August and September San Sebastián hosts a hugely traditional classical music event: the Classical Music Fortnight.

The Kursaal Centre, Santa María and San Vicente churches, the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and other stages throughout the city open their doors to fantastic international symphony orchestras and soloists.

Despite its name, the ‘Quincena’ actually brings five weeks of excellent music; it is the oldest festival of its kind in Spain (on-going since 1939) and one of the longest running in Europe.
