General information and recomendations about the selected destination
San Sebastián is a beautiful, upmarket seaside town located 20 km from the lrún Hendaya border. A fashionable, clean and modern city of about 186,000 inhabitants. It lies in the shelter of Monte lgueldo, Urgull and Ulía, and the river Urumea flows through the middle of it. As well as the cosmopolitanism of the modern town with its large avenues and elegant tree-lined boulevards there is the picturesque old quarter and its delightful fishing port where excellent typical restaurants compete for business and where we find its two oldest churches - the Gothic Church of San Vicente and the Baroque Church of Santa María, as well as the 16th Convent of San Telmo, converted into a museum and worthy of a visit to see its cloister and the paintings by the great Josep Sert which decorated it.
The beach of La Concha is a magical viewing point from the city out onto the Bay of Biscay, enclosed by rolling hills and the Island of Santa Clara, a bay of outstanding natural beauty. The Catedral del Buen Pastor, the Municipal Casino, the Auditorium and the Congress Palace are important landmarks within the city.
Then there’s San Sebastián’s gastronomic status, the home to some of the best restaurants in Spain. No surprises that the city was awarded by Caterwings in 2017 the title of the world’s best food destination. Head to the Mercado de la Bretxa in the parte vieja on Calle San Juan Kalea and try the amazing variety of pinchos on offer. Cider houses are also common in the city as cider production is one of the oldest traditions in the Basque country.
