An English-style building facing the island of Santa Clara.
Summer house of ancient kings.
At the end of the 19th century, San Sebastián became a favourite tourist destination for the wealthy classes. In 1887, Queen María Cristina chose the city for her summer break. That was why this spectacular building was built at La Concha Bay opposite the island of Santa Clara. The Miramar Palace is in the style of an English cottage. Its architect, Selden Wornum, also designed the palaces in Biarritz and Saint Jean de Luz. The three buildings are similar in appearance. The gardens surrounding the palace are worth a visit.
