This route will take you inland, to the highest spots and towns of Gipuzkoa, barely 30 km from San Sebastián. The River Oria valley is the traditional axis of north-south communication, and the N-1 will be your guide on this adventure. It doesn’t take long to drive to Tolosa, a town of great nobility which was the capital of Gipuzkoa for ten years in the early 19th century. But prior to that time it had already more than proven its importance, as you will see from the Baroque mansions (Idiáquez, Atodo, etc.), the Gothic Iglesia de Santa María and the préciosité porticoed structure of the Tinglado market on the banks of the Oria. The best idea is to visit Tolosa on a Saturday morning when the bustling, colourful market is on.
