Basque Country Comments

Donostia-San Sebastián … I lived there for a year, it's fantastic!
Donostia-San Sebastián … The food is superb -- the traditional dining clubs encourage good eating, the old town is full of bars restaurants and interesting shops. The beach is superb and the harbour has great restaurants. They have interesting churches -- climb up to the statue of Christ find out about the Basque culture (especially by reading the slogans added to the buildings every night). Pintxos are very special, tapas cannot compare. Travel further out north, south, or east and discover Biarritz, Bilbao, and Pamplona -- they're all within easy reach.
Donostia-San Sebastián … I visited San Sebastian back in 1994 and I didn't like it. I was expecting a very quaint, very Basque town and I was disappointed on both counts- I could hardly hear any Basque being spoken and it looks much like any other Spanish city, i.e. very urban. As for the beach, it is the kind where people go surfing, not swimming, so expect wind and waves.The surrounding countryside, however, is gorgeous, green and lush, right there with Devon or Ireland.
Donostia-San Sebastián … Sand (!) beaches and bars. That's about all this place has got, and it's what they do well. Good place to relax and Bilbao (with the Guggenheim) isn't to far a train ride away.
Donostia-San Sebastián … San Sebastian is one of the most gorgeous beach/view/city combos I've ever seen. Great night life and pintxos, too.
Donostia-San Sebastián … I went to San Sebastian for Carnival. It was a great experience, lots of culture a and really nice people. It is also the tapas capital that can't be missed. Even when i's cold in the winter there is still plenty to see.
