Museums

Gipuzkoa is in itself a place packed with traditions, history, art, etc., making it the perfect place to visit museums of different kinds and subject matter. From museums dedicated to hugely important artists such as Chillida and Balenciaga to smaller yet no less interesting options such as the one dedicated to Victor Hugo in Pasajes San Juan, or others with specific themes for the younger members of the family.
