San Sebastian - Donostia

4.3

Pearl of the Cantabrian Sea

As one of the anchoring cities of the beautiful Basque Country, San Sebastián boasts a trendy, cosmopolitan vibe while still harboring a relaxed, coastal charm. The contrast of nearby green rolling hills with the Bay of Biscay’s blue waters add to the city’s aesthetic appeal. With attractive neighborhoods like the historic Old Quarter and the 19th-century Centro Romántico, both of which express the city’s rich cultural history, San Sebastián is an internationally recognized surfing locale with an active young community, as well. It is also considered one of the gastronomic capitals of Spain. Customize your holiday with our Spain trip itinerary site to create an adventure that suits you.
