Guided tours based on novels

 Guided tours based on novels



On this guided tour of Pasaia we will visit the most beautiful corners of this Basque town and discover how it has served as inspiration for different national and international novels.

The tour starts next to the monument to Blas de Lezo in Pasai San Pedro and during the visit we will go over the traditions of this town in Gipuzkoa to discover how Pasaia has appeared in numerous novels. Dolores Redondo's "Los privilegios del ángel" and Ibón Martín's "El Faro del Silencio" are some of the works they talk about. Even the famous French writer Victor Hugo also travelled to this town in search of inspiration.

On the tour of Pasaia you can see colourful houses and beautiful façades of its most emblematic places, such as the church of San Pedro or the traditional shipyard of Ondartxo, and walking along the bay of Pasaia you will reach the Puntas of San Pedro, a viewpoint that offers incredible views of the Bay of Biscay. Nearby is the La Plata lighthouse, one of the most beautiful lighthouses on the Basque Coast. Would you like to discover why it was given this name? Now is the time to learn about its history!
After an hour and a half, the tour ends at the starting point.
