You may have heard that the food scene is one of the best things to do in San Sebastian, the foodie capital of Spain. What you may not know is that the city has a very distinctive vibe from the rest of Spain. Don’t expect to hear flamenco or see Moorish architecture. Make sure you order pintxos, not tapas. This is Basque country, one of Europe’s oldest cultures. And it’s stunning! Located less than half an hour from the French border by car and nestled between the Pyrenees mountains and the sea in the Bay of Biscay, San Sebastian is a delight to nature lovers, surfers, architectural fans and history buffs.
