  • It's the nail drawn on the horizon between the two mountains that monitor the entry of the Concha. You see everywhere, more or less distinctly, the best place is to mount Igueldo.

  • Visit the Santa Clara Island, in San Sebastian, is a mandatory plan that any tourist should do because that shows the city and its Bay from another panoramic, accompanied by a good Vermouth and a few servings at the bar of the island, you can enjoy with friends and family for a day of beach and nature and pure relaxation in San Sebastian

  • Dominates the Bay of San Sebastian and is like a painting surrounded by a beautiful molduro. The part in this fantastic city.
