Once the capital of Gipuzkoa, Tolosa was for centuries a strategic commercial point that connected the interior of the country with the Cantabrian ports due to its location on the Oria River.
Wandering the narrow streets of the old town you will discover historical buildings and monuments from its glorious past. The most impressive building is the Santa María church (17th century) in the so-called Basque gothic style.
Tolosa is famous for its produce and Saturday market. The Saturday market is probably the largest market in the Basque Country. Farmers from the region gather in Tolosa to sell their local products, always of the highest quality and freshness. And there are many specialties in the area!
