"The pearl of the Basque Country" San Sebastián by Peret

San Sebastián Travel Guide: 318 reviews and 908 photos

Donosti (San Sebastian), is a charmer city. As the other parts of basque country, is not to much touristic, maybe for the political conflict, i don't know. But the buildings, the beaches, the landscape of the arounds, the parks in the city...All have a charm that will make your visit unforgettable.
Take a walk, you won't be disappointed.
Donosti és una ciutat encantadora. Com altres parts del país Basc, no és massa turística, potser pel conflicte polític. Però els edificis, els parcs, la platja, tot allà té un atractiu que fa la visita inolvidable. Feu un passeig, no us decepcionareu.


Hegoak ebaki banizkio / if i cut their wing
nerea izango zen, / he colud be mine
ez zuen aldegingo. / he couldn't scape
Bainan, honela / but in this way
ez zen gehiago txoria izango / he couldn't be a bird
eta nik... / And I
txoria nuen maite / loved the bird

Song of Mikel Laboa, basque singer

    beautiful and not overly-visited, perhaps we should keep this area a wonderful secret? ;-)
