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.
