Just for you: Pintxo Tasting Tour (either day tour or nighttime tour)
Rising majestically above the vivacious historic city centre of San Sebastian, Hotel Maria Cristina is supremely surrounded by promenades and gardens.
This landmark building is situated between the white sand beaches and colourful buildings of La Concha and La Zurriola and in front of the Urumea River and Victoria Eugenia Theatre. Just opposite—on the other side of the river—is the Kursaal Congressional Palace.
As the capital of Gipuzkoa, San Sebastian is a city where visitors co-exist seamlessly with the approximately 180,000 locals who frequent the city’s esteemed restaurants, world-class casino, and Zubieta Race Track.
The vast selection of cultural activities includes year-round options San Telmo Museum, Balenciaga Museum and the Aquarium. Annual head-line events are the International Film Festival, Musical Fortnight, and Jazz Festival. The Fantasy and Horror Film Festival and Theatre Festival are exciting options for the adventurous. Gipuzkoa is also a recent discovery of the golf world. The winding Cantabric coast lined with small fishing villages, beaches, cliffs, and rocky coves presents a contrasting landscape perfect for the picturesque sport.
As a result of an astonishing 16 Michelin stars bestowed upon San Sebastian restaurants, culinary aficionados congregate here to sample distinctive Basque cuisine.
