San Sebastián information
This city lies along a white sandy bay between the Urgull and Igeldo hills. Fishermen's houses, a smart suburb and modern districts make it one of the most attractive cities on the Cantabrian coast. The Museum of San Telmo, the Peine de los Vientos (Comb of the Winds) and the Kursaal are examples of how the city brings together modern and traditional features. Meanwhile, the province of Guipuzcoa, of which San Sebastián is the capital, blends sea and mountains, offering the traveller landscape, sports and gastronomy, as well as interesting monuments. Basque cuisine has a recognised international prestige.
La Concha- The Shell
It is one of the most beautiful and famous urban beach which has all the necessary services and infrastructures. For the little one, platforms have been set up in the sea with small aquatic attractions. Its fantastic promenade is always popular as is the bicycle lane which follows the same route. It extends along the whole length of the bay, travelling along the beaches of Ondarreta and La Concha. This beach has beautiful views of Monte Igeldo and Santa Clara island .
In the old quarters of the city you can find the traditional Basque cuisine in the form of "pintxos",tapas and "banderillas" traditionally accompanied by the basque white wine called "txacoli".
