House of History

In a fortress strong

Up on Mount Urgull, back in the day La Mota Castle was one of San Sebastián's main defense bastions against invasions and attacks from the sea. Today it's home to the Casa de la Historia, a museum which offers a unique look at the city's history from its origins through the industrial revolution, the construction of its 19th-century New Town, up to the present day. Customs, folklore, and other cultural aspects are also covered. Another must for understanding the city - and of course also getting some of the most sweeping possible views of it.
