Romantic, elegant, with a unique range of cultural and gastronomic attractions, San Sebastián is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in northern Spain. The capital of the Basque province of Gipuzkoa welcomes visitors with a postcard image, that of the enchanting Concha Bay, framed by Mount Igueldo and Santa Clara Island. There is a splendid urban beach for the delight of those who enjoy a calm swim, whereas the nearby and windier Zurriola is perfect for those who prefer the adrenaline of surf.
Once you move away from the seafront, San Sebastián continues to dazzle you with its rich architectural heritage, which includes refined Belle Époque buildings, historic churches and surprising avantgarde buildings, such as the famous Kursaal. Food lovers, on the other hand, will be happy to know that they are in the global capital of pintxos: in the old town of Donostia, every tavern hides delicious gastronomic treasures!
After having explored the length and breadth of San Sebastián, the wonders of the province of Gipuzkoa are right there waiting for travellers: the enchanting fishing villages, such as Hondarribia, the Loyola and Arantzazu sanctuaries, Aralar natural park, Zarautz’s extremely long beach and many other surprises for an unforgettable trip!
