San SebastiŠn - open to the sea and sheltered by mountains

San SebastiŠn (Basque: Donostia) is the administrative capital of Gipuzkoa, one of the three provinces making up the Basque Autonomous Community. It lies to the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula, 30 kilometres from the border with France. The cross-border region running from San SebastiŠn to Bayonne represents an important hub of social, economic and tourist development in the south-west of the European Union. San SebastiŠn is a medium-sized city with almost 186,000 inhabitants. It is a tertiary, tourist city, eminently commercial, with strong emphasis on services and congresses. In recent years, San SebastiŠn has moved into the leading position among European cities, largely because of its commitment to science, technology, sustainable development and culture.

Festivals, museums, galleries, cinemas, theatres, sculptures... San SebastiŠn is, tastes and smells of culture. The European Capital of Culture 2016 represents an enormous opportunity to turn the focus on culture and dialogue as the roads towards improved coexistence.

Basque cuisine, and particularly the good eating for which San SebastiŠn is so well known, is internationally recognised thanks to the chefs who have earned it fame the world over. The 16 Michelin stars held by restaurants in the city vouch for the excellent everyday work of the local culinary artists who, with their feet well anchored to traditional Basque cuisine, have innovated until taking up their place in the vanguard of world gastronomy.

San SebastiŠnís beaches are one of the greatest attractions. Each one has its own personality: the Concha, the best known, and Ondarreta, a family favourite, make up the Concha Bay. The Zurriola, largely taken to by youngsters and surf-lovers.
