San Sebastian city full-day Tour
A full-day experience in San Sebastian and Pasaia
Did you know S. Sebastian
. . . was a defensive city surrounded for such a big walls that nobody could conquer it until XVIII century?
. . . used to be the Capital of Spain during summer months in XIX and XX century?
. . . and has the bigger amount of Michelin stars per inhabitant in the world?
Join me in this tour and let's discover together all the secrets of the city. Besides the fact I am a native (so a real local), I travelled the world for a while and even after that I chose S. Sebastian to settle down: I am passionate about this city so rich in history, nature, gastronomy and social life. A magical combo I want to show you!
If you are interested in culture and history, in understanding how S. Sebastian changed through the years from one of the most impregnables fortress of Europe to the tourist resort and gastronomical hub that became now a days, I'll take you on a fascinating historical journey around the new and old city, describing the main sights and advising you on the best pintxos to try!
