As every year Women and city Forum will go around the streets of Donostia to know how women contribute to the history of the city. In this case the walk is in Intxaurrondo (meaning 'walnut tree' in Basque). Ascen Martinez, an historian of Women and City Forum, will lead the group around streets which are named after women. She will explain these women´s biographies. The itinerary will also go around the shops of the district owned by women to understand the role of this shops on maintaining and growing community.

Intxaurrondo is a large district to the east of the city. The original nucleus lies between the railway and the Ategorrieta Avenue, where still today the farmhouse Intxaurrondo Zar, declared "National Monument", is situated since the mid-17th century. The railway cuts across the district, the southern side being the fruit of the heavy development undergone in the area during the immigration years of the 1950s and 1960s. In addition, further housing estates have been built up more recently souther beyond the N-1 E-5 E-80 E-70 ring road (South Intxaurrondo).
