San Sebastián, Donostia in Basque, boasts a circular bay with crystal clear waters and white sand beaches. Throughout history, it has attracted people of the highest status in search of sunshine and sophistication. This made the city famous during the Belle Époque and made the Queen Regent María Cristina establish her royal residence here during the summer. We can see evidence of this exquisite past today in San Sebastián.
San Sebastián is also famous for its pintxos (finger food). The best place to try them is the Old Town, a charming old town famous for its high concentration of bars, the largest in the world! Here where the pintxo is king and food is taken very seriously.
