Crafts, exhibitors, workshops, entertainment, shows, competitions, exhibitions… The Medieval Fair in Hondarribia is another good reason to visit and enjoy the city, its historical district, its old houses and mansions.
This fantastic fair attracts the young and old, for the enjoyment of all.
In medieval times, Hondarribia was a major commercial town. Markets turned Hondarribia into a dynamic community of craftsmen and traders.
Today, carpenters, blacksmiths, coopers, goldsmiths and stonemasons come to our medieval town to show the know-how of medieval craftsmen.
Acrobats, puppeteers, jugglers and minstrels meet in Hondarribia to recreate the life of a market where Christian, Jewish and Arab cultures coexisted.
