DONOSTIA-SAN SEBASTIÁN | Basque Country - Spain

As the previous topic for San Sebastián is quite rusty and abandoned (last post in 2007), and besides its rather subjective title has been known to cause struggles and discrepancies between users, I suggest we create a brand new one for this beautiful city.

Donostia-San Sebastián​
Located in the province of Gipuzkoa, in the Basque Country (northern Spain)
Chosen European Capital of Culture for 2016

Now let's start with the photos :)

Well, I live just one hour drive away from this city, so I can tell you some things about it. The city itself has a diverse amount of things to do and see, in my opinion the Concha Beach, the Aquarium, the Cathedral and the Old Town are the most important things to see when in the city, but there are loads of things you can do (like eating the famous pintxos!). You may find more info here.

The city's climate is Oceanic, like most of the Atlantic Europe (France, England, etc.), and quite rainy besides. If your main objective is going to the beach or surfing, I'd recommend the summer season, mainly between the last weeks of July and the firsts of September. San Sebastián is considered actually an expensive city, both for shopping and for living, but it lies on the same range as other Spanish cities, as Barcelona or Madrid. It is the most expensive city within the Basque Country.

Hope it helps.
