Pasaia (Basque Country)


Pasaia was the main whaling port in Europe. For centuries, the great Basque expeditions set sail from Pasaia toward Newfoundland. Pasaia is located in a bay protected from the Bay of Biscay, only 4 kilometers from the city center of San Sebastian and 15 kilometers from Hendaye.

When you come visit The Factory Albaola, take time to stroll through the typical streets of Donibane and San Pedro, to visit the House of Victor Hugo, to cross the bay with the boat service, to enjoy the gastronomy and the natural surroundings of Pasaia, including Mount Jaizkibel, protected by the Natura 2000 European network.
