Maria Cristina Hotel #


Maria Cristina Hotel, Since it opened in 1912 the 136-room Hotel Maria Cristina has been intimately linked to the history and cultural life of San Sebastian.

In the late 19th century the seaside town on the southern point of the Bay of Biscay became a favorite destination for royalty and aristocrats who came to enjoy the sunshine and newly recognized therapeutic properties of sea bathing. A traditional afternoon stroll along the boardwalk offered an opportunity to see and be seen while the many cafés and open-air terraces were filled with high society. San Sebastian had passed from being a sleepy fishing village into a thriving cosmopolitan town requiring luxurious, modern facilities to meet the demands of its discerning guests. Serendipitously this urban blossoming occurred at the height of the Belle Époque era, and today the majority of buildings flanking the famed La Concha beach, including the city hall, Victoria Eugenia Theater and the Hotel Maria Cristina, are constructed in this style. The majestic design of the hotel by architect Charles Mewes, the man responsible for the Ritz in Madrid and Paris, combined with the property’s enviable river setting and sea views, resulted in it immediately becoming the favored accommodation for international high society. In July 1912 the hotel’s namesake, Spain’s regent Maria Cristina, was the first person to cross the threshold. Over 40 years later, with the inauguration of the San Sebastian Film Festival in 1953, the hotel was still attracting big names - screen stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Woody Allen, Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Brad Pitt and Susan Sarandon.

Event Overview
Welcome message:
The Basque people have inhabited the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains around the Bay of Biscay in northern Spain and southern France for thousands of years. They are the oldest surviving ethnic group in Europe. The Basques have prospered, despite the frequent suppression of their distinctive language and culture. The Basque Country is composed of four historic provinces in Spain and three historic provinces in France which are united by language and common national traditions. In Spain, the Basque provinces are an autonomous region with a Basque government, while the French provinces answer to the central French government in Paris. 

While the French part of the Basque region is sometimes undervalued in comparison to the better-known regions of Provence and the French Riviera, it would not be correct to say that the region is undiscovered or undeveloped. Once you cross the border into France, the landscape changes from green hills to the craggy foothills of the Pyrenees. Coastal towns sometimes have steep and rocky coasts. In less than an hour, we will arrive in glamorous Biarritz, less than ten miles from unspoiled mountain villages. Biarritz - in its heyday renowned for its elegance and a favored haunt of the rich and famous - is considered the surfing capital of Europe. The Atlantic breakers surging onto its beaches provide excellent surfing conditions.

Radiology in the Basque Country – Hotel Plan Information 

San Sebastian & Biarritz 


Our conference starts in San Sebastian, Spain, at the newly refurbished 5* Maria Cristina Hotel. Since opening in 1912, the Maria Cristina has been closely linked to the history and cultural life of San Sebastian. This landmark building is situated in front of the Urumea River and the Victoria Eugenie Theatre Experience gracious hospitality on a grand scale in the hotel’s rooms and suites. It is decorated in a sophisticated palette of greys and white, reflecting the original décor in the Belle Époque style. The rooms are a quiet haven of luxury, style and modern technology. It offers a dazzling range of services which, combined, make for an unforgettable stay. A member of the Luxury Collection, it offers the best of modern amenities and 5* service. 

 We then move to Biarritz , the most famous Basque city in France. Once a significant whaling port, it was transformed into a chic resort when Empress Eugenie persuaded her husband, Napoleon III to build a palace there in 1854. The palace was converted into what is now the 5* Hotel du Palais, a grand “Old World” hotel at the north end of the Grand Plage.After World War II, the Hôtel du Palais was forced to close for a period in the 1950s. It took a campaign by the mayor to obtain funding to refurbish and reopen the building, under the slogan "No Palace, No Millionaires". Once reopened, guests have included Coco Chanel, Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra. The façades and roofs of the hotel were listed as historical monuments in December, 1993.
