Although it was opened in 2011, it's still one of my most wished destinations of my list.
Located in Getaria, Spain - Cristótbal's birthplace located in Basque Country, Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa is an artful mecca in more than one way. Not only it holds about 1200 fashion pieces from the history of the Balenciaga fashion house distinctly separated into rooms by his design phases, its architecture is a art point of its own. The spirits of Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich & Greta Garbo wonder through these amazing halls, as their dresses designed by Mr. Balenciaga adorn the space of the museum.
It's easy to visit the coastal town of Getaria because it's not far from the popular touristic destination San Sebastian. You can check their opening hours on their webpage (HERE), and visit the place as soon as possible.
It's the perfect drug for a fashion history junkie like myself. Can't wait to go there some day...
