Tabakalera, San Sebastiáns former Tabocca factory for over 90 years, now houses Cultural events and exhibitions. A few Art exhibitions are free to visit such as LIVES HANGING BY A STRING by Malas Madres in the Public Square area. This multi-purpose Art Museum/Gallery/Exhibition/Event/Movie space has definitely been an enrichment to the cultural scene in Donostia San Sebastián. With the annual film festival, Tabakalera is open year-round as a place to meet and learn, with regular Lab’s and Workshops taking place. Also free to visit is the current solo exhibition “I NEVER SAID UMBRELLA” by Itziar Okariz, curated by Beatriz Herráez, which runs until June 3rd, 2018 and is located in the exhibition halls 1 and 2 on the first floor. Personally, a proper orientation guide would have helped me a lot during my visit, as I just didn’t know what else is currently going on, and especially, where everything is located.
Inside the building, on the entrance next to the train station and the underground walkway (this one actually connects the city centre with the Tabakalera, which was hard to find as well), there is a charming cafe called Taba Café. I had an utterly delicious Cappuccino for takeaway, for just 1,70€. So many people have been laptopping there, seems like a great place with good WiFi.
