The jewel in the crown, famous for its elegant architecture, city beaches, and vibrant culture.

Donostia/San Sebastian is located in a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment. The city is surrounded by the Cantabrian Sea, with a spectacular bay that boasts two beaches (Ondarreta and The Concha beach), as well as Santa Clara island.

Donostia/San Sebastian is also surrounded by mountains, which offer impressive views of the bay and city.

Don’t forget to climb Monte Igeldo to enjoy panoramic views along with its amusement park, which opened in 1912 and remains in operation to this day.

Donostia/San Sebastián is known worldwide for its International Film Festival and its high concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants. But, you can also enjoy more affordable options in the old town. Walk the streets of the old town of Donostia/San Sebastián and discover the city’s fabulous pintxos.

In addition, we encourage you to take a walk along the famous Playa de la Concha and visit the Peine del Viento. The Comb of the Wind is a sculpture by Eduardo Chillida that is located on the seafront promenade of La Concha. The sculpture is a symbol of the city and offers spectacular views of the bay.
