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.
