GETAWAY IN SAN SEBASTIAN WITH CIDER: What can I do?
This San Sebastian getaway is an opportunity to visit the capital of Guipuzcoa where you can enjoy the city’s quality cuisine, stroll through the Centre, explore many tapas bars and tasting the excellent regional wines, such as Txakoli. In addition, you should not miss the city’s most famous beach, La Concha, and its promenade overlooking the beach and harbor.
We recommend visiting the San Telmo Museum and exploring the history and ethnography of the Basque people, as well as their traditions and economy.
Don’t miss the San Martín and La Bretxa markets!
A short distance away from the city in the Getaria and Zarautz area, Txakoli, a bright sparkling white wine is produced, and an extensive gastronomy based on fresh-grilled fish is offered.
Another alternative is to visit the area of Hondarribia and Pasaia, two charming towns with traditions deeply rooted on the famous coastal road, Camino del Norte (the Northern Route).
We hope you enjoy your Getaway” in San Sebastian!
