Strolling San Sebastian

Strolling San Sebastian, San Sebastian, Spain (B)

I had just one day to spend in San Sebastián, so I battled a minor head cold and walked all over the seaside town, known locally in Basque as Donostia. (This town definitely has pharmacies, and Marc and I have since been thankfully cured by their Spanish medicines.)

Basically, if you're a fan of churches, parks, and beaches, you will love San Sebastián. I had an alright weather day, as you will see from my photos. The morning and evening both had cloud cover, but the entire afternoon the sky was bright blue.

The Puente Maria Cristina has four ornate pillar-towers with great horse sculptures on top. This is the furthest inland landmark and a good place to start your walk.

The Good Shepherd of San Sebastian Cathedral is a great walk around and through. It's not that old (late nineteenth century), but its Gothic-Revival style is well-done and interesting for every cathedral tourist.

Parts of San Sebastián reminded me very much of lovely Deauville, France. It has that same clean resort vibe, fancy hotels, and even also its own international film festival. La Concha Beach has lots of space and activities along its 1,5 kilometers, and the views include mountains, an island, and the city. ......
