San Sebastian, always in motion

A city that breathes gastronomy, culture and modernity

The proximity to the centre of the city means that our clients are able to enjoy the myriad of charms of this enclave, considered one of the jewels of the Cantabrian coast for its innovative gastronomy, French inspired architecture, the beauty of its beaches, the large gathering of its very diverse shops and its broad spectrum of culture.

If one speaks about gastronomic tradition, San Sebastian is known worldwide for its famous pintxos route, its historic centre, its cider houses, and its haute cuisine restaurants, being the city with the highest concentration of Michelin stars in the world in relation to the number of inhabitants.

Among its inimitably beautiful beaches and regarded as the best beach in Europe for the second consecutive year, the bay of La Concha stands out, along with the Zurriola beach well known among surf lovers, and the Ondarreta beach.

In terms of cultural offerings, San Sebastian breathes modernity with its famous International Festival of Cinema, The Jazz Festival and The Quincena Musical, in addition to the creative and artistic avant-garde emerging around Tabakalera, the recent Capital of European Culture in 2016, or the most modern, cosmopolitan and young neighbourhood of Gros.
