The Belle Epoque city with a private guide


Once a Spanish Queen came here and fell in love with La Concha bay. She established her summer residence in San Sebastian. This way a navy base became a fancy resort. Since the end of the XIX century loads of European aristocracy, bourgeoisie and bohemians made this city their favourite place to go to.
The sould of this unusual city discovers in stunning La Concha promenade and Art Nouveau style buildings, the glamorous riverbank and the stir of the Old Town.
They say San Sebastian has the best cuisine. Let's check it with a glass of Basque wine / coffee / grape juice and a pincho (a gastronomic mini wonder).
I'll show you the sights of San Sebastian and tell you about the lesser known stories about this city and its people.
Charming and elegant, San Sebastian is considered the most beautiful city in Spain. I will let you decide whether it is true or not.
