Zumaia, international cinema municipality

Zumaia, a town in Guipúzcoa, has wonderful stretches of coastline that you will love to visit again and again. Also, the strange rock formations, known as the flysch , will take you back to 60 million years ago, when the Earth underwent different mutations.

The town of Zumaia is also known for its cinematographic side, because scenes from the film Eight Basque surnames were recorded there, where a ceremony is held, and one of the beaches appears in one of the seasons of the Game of Thrones series.

Zumaia is located in a bay, where the green of its mountains together with the blue of the sea create a perfect landscape. Two rivers run through this bay, the Urola and Narrondo.

Also, if you want to know more about this town, we can visit the church of San Pedro with an austere style, which will take us to the Middle Ages. Inside, we will find one of the most impressive Gothic spaces in the Basque Country.

There is also the famous convent of San José and more monuments that catch the eyes of visitors.
