Ayuntamiento de San Sebastián
The City hall is located between La Concha Beach and the Old Town, it is one of the most majestic buildings of San Sebastián. Originally built in 1882 as a casino hall, it once hosted parties of the Belle Époque era, when Europe’s bourgeoisie and aristocracy spent their summers in San Sebastian. During World War I, the casino was filled with an eclectic mix of political refugees, spies (such as Mata Hari). Later on during the Spanish Civil War, the building was also caught up in the fighting between the nationalists and republicans. Today, bullet holes can still be seen on the facade of the building as a result of the bloody fighting that took place alongside it. Since 1947 the building has been used to house the city hall, which until then, was located at the Constitution Square •🔷•
Plaza de la Constitución
The Constitution Square was constructed in the year 1817 after the devastating fire of 1813. It is located in the heart of the Old Town and the building that dominates the square was San Sebastián’s City Hall until the 1940s. The balconies on the colourful buildings display numbers dating back to the time when the square was used as a bullring. Here, some of the most important local festivities take place •⚜•
