Lists about this place
Wander, wander wander. Get off of the main drag. This is one city where you canNOT go wrong. Whether you walk into a dirty bar and it turns out to be delicious gourmet food, take a wrong turn up a mountain and hit a man selling coffee in a stone hut, or end up across the river from Casco Viejo and mix it up with the locals, you just can’t go wrong in this most beautiful town.
Oh, and order some Colacao at Bidaluze in one of the Plazas. Comes with Marias and a coating of chocolate…mmmm.
After that, catch the 20-min. bus to Fuentarabia. Trust me.
Just back from San Seb after a ten year gap…ten years ago this place changed my life during a year abroad at Deuesto Business School…went back with one of my best friends. The place has changed only in very subtle ways – more relaxed, more people speaking Spanish, Spanish flags etc. But the rest was so San Seb – frudisk smelt the same and the pinxos as good as ever. Wonder company, wonderful place.over 6 years ago

It is the first city I stayed in on my first trip abroad when I was 14. After several more trips, it is still the most beautiful city I have ever visited and I long to go back someday. It has a gorgeous beach and boardwalk, and walking around the hills is a great experience. I love the downtown, the atmosphere, and the weather in the region. There are tons of places to explore in and around the city.over 7 years ago
