HONDARRIBIA, maritime town

Hondarribia is a town with a fishing tradition, and in which this sector still occupies an impor- tant part of the daily routine, along with the family-type agriculture.

This is shown in the town’s gastronomic offer, which is ample and varied. In 1361, the “Cofradía de Mareantes de San Pedro” (Fishermen Association of San Pedro) is born, although there was plenty of fishing activity in the town.

The first historical data shows the fishermen as pioneers in the art of whale hunting. This has been reflected in the lives of our fishermen. Nowadays, the customs and traditions are maintained in all the celebrations.
