You won’t find any flamenco or paella when you make it to San Sebastian—and that’s a good thing. Home to rugged green landscapes and some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, this is the Basque Country at its finest.
The proud heritage of the Basque people, along with the city’s rich maritime history, help make San Sebastian one of the best destinations for foodies. Seafood is present in many of the best pintxos, which can range from the simple to the avant-garde. As if that wasn’t enough, San Sebastian is also home to one of the world’s best cheesecakes—so you can satisfy your sweet tooth, too!
