San Sebastian, a basque city that deserves the visit

The jewel in the Basque crown, San Sebastian sits regally on a crescent bay, surrounded by rolling hills. Gourmands flock to Spain’s culinary capital to sample its inventive tapas, fresh seafood and Michelin-starred meals, while fashionable visitors stroll along San Sebastian’s chi-chi beach promenade.

About Spain

The old city houses some monuments that are worth the detour : the San Vicente gothic church, the Santa María del Coro baroque church and the old convent, today museum of San Telmo presenting interesting archaeological and ethnological collections.

Follow the living streets and reach the square of the Constitución, used originally as an arena. On the "Gros" beach, you can admire the modern architecture of the "Kursaal" (concert hall) , created by the architect Rafael Moneo . Don’t miss one of the main events of San Sebastian : the "Tamborrada".

You will discover the brass bands parading in the streets on January 19th and during 24 hours, lively atmosphere guaranteed
