Get to know San Sebastián
The urban layout of San Sebastian unfolds overlooking La Concha Bay. Mount Igeldo marks the boundary at one end, an unbeatable vantage point for enjoying the views over the city. At its foot is the Punta Torrepea, where the “Wind Comb”, a sculpture by the famous Basque artist Eduardo Chillida, is installed.
One of the best ways to tour their neighborhoods and get closer to their culture is through their cuisine. Basque cuisine has international prestige thanks to the quality of its raw materials and the expertise of its chefs, both traditional and imaginative.
Rivers and valleys guide us through the interior of the province. Following the course of the Oria, the historical towns of Tolosa, Ordizia and Lazkao preserve important monumental legacies. The Urola Valley contains the old town and spa of Cestona/Zestoa, the medieval town of Azpeitia and the Sanctuary of St. Ignatius of Loyola, a Baroque site at the center of Basque religiousness.
