Palacio de Miramar
  • Bus

When regent Queen María Cristina, King Alfonso XIII's mother, began spending her summer holidays in Donostia-San Sebastián, arose the need of building a "Royal Country House". The Queen chose the Count of Morianna's property, a small hillock between the city centre and Antiguo neighbourhood, with fantastic views of La Concha bay. Nowadays the gardens are open to the public but normally the building is closed. The building hosts, for instance, summer courses by the University of the Basque Country and some concerts from the Musical Fortnight.
