The Teatro Victoria Eugenia is one of San Sebastián’s most iconic buildings. Ever since it opened its doors in 1912, it has witnessed the major local cultural events; for decades it was the main stage of the International Film Festival.

With a typical Belle Epoque design, yet lively and modern in spirit, given that its recent 2007 refurbishment converted the building into an innovative performing arts centre equipped with cutting edge equipment and services, the Victoria Eugenia offers a varied and continually changing programme throughout the year.
