Vamos al San Sebastian: 5 Places to See

San Sebastian is easily accessible from Biarritz at around 45 minutes by car, and just under an hour by bus. Located in the Basque Country of northern Spain, San Sebastian is known for its delicious food – called pintxos (pronounced: PEEN-chos) which are basically small servings of food you can eat at the various bars and restaurants that line the “old town”. Be sure to take a glass of Txakoli (pronounched: cha-koLI), the local Basque wine, with each of your stops!

Looking around, you can see plenty of buildings in the style of the late 19th century. You’ll also enjoy visiting the expansive, central beach La Concha on a hot day. Here are a few snaps from my visits to this beautiful seaside Spanish town…
