San Sebastián or Donostia as Basques call it, a charming city located in the Basque Country region is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Spain. And there are more than one reasons why – its unforgettably beautiful beaches La Concha, Zurriola, Ondarreta and the small island beach of Santa Clara, alluring architecture, taste buds spoiling tapas (or pintxos as they call them in Basque country), relaxing restaurants in old city and the list goes on.
Even though the city is quite small and cozy, events such as the San Sebastián International Film Festival, attended by many celebrities, have given it an international recognition. San Sebastián, along with Wrocław, Poland, was chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2016.
