San Sebastian is one of the top cities for foodies. The reason for this is that it boasts 10 restaurants in the Michelin Guide, making up 17 stars, all within a 25-kilometre radius. Quality food is part of the DNA of the Basque city, with recipes and products of the most worthy culinary art.
One of the most beautiful cities in the country intoxicated monarchs and noblemen with its charm. It was, between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the spot the upper class chose for their second homes. It became fashionable with its sea views and soon filled with mansions, luxuries and the typical decor of the era that made San Sebastian great.
Apart from being one of the cities that has received most Michelin Guide awards, San Sebastian also stands out for its local food. The pintxos are a must-try. Wandering round the bars of the old quarter and Gros to regain strength and to savour the flavours, ingredients and tastes has become a tradition.
Trips to come in direct contact with the purest air in the city. Climbing Monte Igueldo to enjoy the panoramic views of the Bay of La Concha is exciting, and just as incredible is dropping by the Parque de Cristina - Enea to discover its amazing variety of plants and trees.
San Sebastian looks out over the sea. La Concha Beach has been awarded the title of the most beautiful urban beach in Europe and it is undoubtedly the emblem of this city. Its 1,300 metres, flanked by a beautiful promenade, adjoin another of its most famous beaches - Ondarreta and its Comb of the Wind frame the Cantabrian horizon.
Lose yourself wandering round the streets and discover its buildings, fall in love with the charm of the old quarter, be impressed by the Miramar palace, relax in La Perla Spa or admire the palatial corners of the city. Each step will surprise you in San Sebastian. As will taking a dive into its culture in the Semana Grande, the week of the 15th of August, not to be missed!
The city’s incredible natural environment makes it the ideal place to practice all kinds of activities. A place where you can surf, go hiking, camp in the hills and much more! Fun guaranteed in an unbeatable setting.
