The Miramar Palace is a late 19th-century palace located on the La Concha Bay of the city of San Sebastian, Basque Country,Spain. It was built in 1893 commissioned by the Spanish Royal Family, based on a 1889 project by English architect Selden Wornum.
The Miramar Palace has a purely English style and presents some neogothic ornaments. On the inside it has some noble areas that remain faithful to their original configuration, among them the White Hall, the Music Hall, the Wooden Hall, the Petit Salon, the Library and the Royal Dining Room. The rest of the Palace has been renovated successively since it was acquired by the City Council, making it become more functional. The Palace preserves the original outside look.
Currently, the Palace and its gardens are open to the public in fixed opening hours. The Miramar Palace houses the Summer Courses of the University of the Basque Country. Until 2016, the Palace housed Musikene, the Higher School of Music of the Basque Country.

San Sebastian is a city of unequalled natural beauty. It has retained the charm and splendour of the Belle Époque, as well as its gastronomic and ancestral traditions. Elegant walks, monuments and gardens, an Old Town full of bars and bordered by nature such as the “Urgull Mountain”, “Urumea River” and the “Concha Bay”, have contributed to make San Sebastian one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Apart from this, San Sebastian shows a dynamic cultural scene since in 2016, was chosen as the European Capital of Culture and shared candidacy with the Polish City of Wroclaw, that added an international dimension together with the International Film Festival of San Sebastian created in 1953.Get more info about how to get there
