SAN SEBASTIAN DAY TOURS
WALKING TOUR (4 hours)
One of the most frequent comments from clients who visit
San Sebastian is: “I never imagined that San Sebastian was such a
beautiful city!” The city radiates a delicacy, elegance and beauty
that can only really be appreciated by those who have visited it.
This tour is designed to show the sites and places
that have made San Sebastian one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
It is especially designed for those people who want to get to know the city
better and get a better understanding of its culture, history and traditions.
There’s a lot to see in San Sebastian, so this tour combines a walking
tour of the old city with a drive around to some of the other, most important
sites that are not so easy to get to by foot. This is the ideal way to enjoy
the city on a half-day private tour.
Some of the highlights of this tour include:
- El Peine del Viento (The Wind Comb). One
of the most recognizable and important works of San Sebastian’s
most famous 20th century artist, Eduardo Chillida. This wrought-iron sculpture
has become as much a part of the landscape of the city as the beach where
it is found. It is an essential part of a visit to San Sebastian, not
just for the sculpture but for the magic of the place itself. From there
you can contemplate the sea in all its splendor, and especially on days
where the seas are rough, you can watch as the waves crash against the
cliffs and the sculpture.
- The Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution
Square). Right in the heart of the old town, it is the most important
square in San Sebastian. At one point it served as the city’s bullring,
and it is one of the best places to sit and enjoy a drink or a tapa and
savor the atmosphere.
- Santa Maria del Coro church. Also located
in the old town, this basilica is one of the most visited sites in San
Sebastian. The Barroque-style church was built in 1750 on top of an old
Romanesque church, which is why it is considered to be the oldest in the
- The port. The port area of San Sebastian,
along the western edge of Monte Urgull, is a great place to sit and relax
after a morning’s stroll. The afternoon sunsets are magical, especially
if there are ships in the bay, as these become silhoutted in the setting
sun. From the port you also have some of the best views over the Concha
beach and Monte Igueldo. At the far end of the port is the city’s
aquarium and the Natural Science Museum, which houses the complete skeleton
of a huge whale captured in 1878.
- La Playa de la Concha (La Concha Beach).
Of the three beaches in San Sebastian, La Concha is the most beautiful.
Famous wolrdwide for it’s almost perfectly shaped bay, la Concha
is without doubt one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe.
- Monte Igueldo. On the western edge of
San Sebastian we find Monte Igueldo,between the Ondarreta beach and the
Piene del Viento. Take the cable car to the top of the mountain to enjoy
some of the most spectacular panaromic views of the city.
- San Telmo Museum. The museum, in the heart
of San Sebastian, is housed in the remains of a 16th century convent,
the oldest in the entire Basque region. It has become the “Museum
of Basque Society”, offering visitors a much deeper vision and understanding
of the current Basque society.
- Boat ride through the Bay of La Concha.
