San Sebastian Travel Guide & Tourist Attractions

 

 

 

San Sebastian has practically everything that a discerning traveler wants to find in a holiday resort. The luminous blue waters of the Concha Bay, the sandy golden beaches surrounded by verdant rolling hills and picturesque countryside have been luring the rich and famous to this queen of resorts located on the Basque coast of Northern Spain.

The patronage of wealthy travelers over a long period and income from international trade – especially after the Americas were discovered –  through its busy port turned San Sebastian into a popular tourist destination.

Excellent infrastructure came up for making tourism business more lucrative. Luxury hotels were built, historical sites were beautified and varieties of entertainment opportunities were created.

 

San Sebastian is quite a small city – albeit pretty cozy and enormously stylish – with hugely popular seafood-based restaurants, hundreds of bars and several sun-kissed beaches.

It is only in San Sebastian that you could have the unique experience of swimming and sunbathing close to historical sites. The city could be divided into different areas. The Old Quarter – as the name indicates – is the old part of the city located at the bottom of Monte Urgull.

 

It is a fascinating area with cobbled streets and narrow winding alleyways lined with varieties of specialty shops, bars and restaurants. Climb to the top of the Urgull and behold the stunning view of the city below and the sea beyond it.

At the center of the Old Quarter is the Plaza de la Constitucion surrounded by buildings with large balconies. It was a bull ring in the Middle Ages and spectators used these balconies for watching the fight and cheering the matadors. Another popular attraction is the Museo de San Telmo – a museum housed in a 16th century monastry. Juegos gratis

The Romantic Area has a charming ambience and is a great place to be with your companion. Stroll around this area and walk the winding streets lighted in the evenings with ornate lamps and go to one of the many cozy bars and lively restaurants serving the finest Basque food and playing tender music.

 

The City Center is a lively place and great for shopping. It is the city’s commercial area with good restaurants and inexpensive hotels.

The picturesque Gros District is usually hectic with various activities but it’s tranquil at times. It’s a pleasure then to sit across the Urumea River or walk down the Zurriola Beach. There are several restaurants here and tapas bars, hotels and also a few hostels.

San Sebastian is a gourmet’s paradise. Basques depend on the sea for their fish-based food and turn to the fertile mountains for ham, lamb, vegetables and wild mushrooms. What they serve on the table is simply heavenly. You get here excellent wine and varieties of cider.

Whether you prefer a luxury hotel or a simple place to sleep at night, San Sebastian has them all. All you have to do is to come here and have a good time!
