Located next to the Zurriola Beach, the Palacio de Congresos Kursaal hosts every year the Donostia-San Sebastián International Film Festival. The glass and steel cubes designed by architect Rafael Moneo boast two auditoriums for more than 2,300 people and up to 20 different rooms, which capacity ranges from 10 to 575. The architect Rafael Moneo designed the translucent glass cubes of Kursaal to resemble “two beached rocks” with the aim of “perpetuating the geography and, as far as possible, emphasizing the harmony between the natural and the artificial".
