Cathedral of the Good Shepherd of San Sebastián

Gothic beauty.

Pinnacles stretching up to the sky, beautiful stained-glass windows, gargoyles... You'll be impressed by this building in Gothic style. Be sure not to miss any details, inside or out. For a moment, you will feel like you are in the German city of Cologne. But you are in the centre of San Sebastián. Building began on it with the expansion of Amara, a programme for expanding the city at the end of the 19th century. The council contributed what was marshlands at the time. In fact, there was much doubt about the viability of the project. Nonetheless, the architect Manuel de Echave took charge of building this huge Gothic church, inspired by the German cathedrals of the previous century.
