Calle San Pedro


The main drag of Hondarribia's La Marina district, Calle San Pedro is a quaint pedestrian-only strip flanked by traditional fishers’ houses, with facades painted bright green or blue, and wooden balconies cheerfully decorated with flower boxes. Many of the old-fashioned buildings now contain pintxo bars and restaurants.
