Barrio de Gros

Calle Miracruz - Barrio de Gros
  • Bus

The Gros district is located between the mouth of the Urumea and Monte Ulía, in front of Zurriola beach. These days the star attraction in the district is the Kursaal, the famous cubes that mimic the rocks that break off from the Gros breakwater. Designed in 1999 by Rafael Moneo amidst great controversy, the building serves as a convention centre and is known around the world for being the official headquarters of the San Sebastian Film Festival. There too is the Kubo, the exhibit hall of the Kutxa savings bank, which is on the building’s ground floor and hosts the city’s most risqué seasonal exhibits.
