WHAT TO DO?
San Sebastian is an atmosphere, a vibe, before a monument. Ideally you should take in its charm with a walk around the Casco Viejo (Old Quarter) and the Concha Beach, after that cross the Urumea River to discover the modern soul of the city. A route that takes you from Victoria Eugenia Theatre to the Kursaal, both of which are examples of the best of music and arts the city has to offer.
If you are looking for culture, San Sebastian hosts international events, like the San Sebastian Jazz Festival or the International San Sebastian Film Festival, amazing times to visit the city, however on a budget trip they should be avoided.
The city is also surrounded by green hills perfect to complete your visit: The Igeldo, with its famous cable car; The Urgull, next to the City Centre and crowned by the Mota Castle; and the Ulía, the big lung of San Sebastian.
