Designed by Rafael Moneo, the Kursaal is one of the city's most beloved and noteworthy buildings. Consisting of two cubes made of translucent glass, the structure, which serves as San Sebastián's cultural and conference centre, was designed to represent two beached rocks. A lively array of musical and cultural events is held here year-round.

The building is a useful landmark and has a great restaurant and bar. Drivers should note that there's a large public car park beneath, which provides handy access to Playa de Zurriola.
