Its all about San Sebastian

San Sebastian, this magic city, the urban and nature environment, the streets, the live in the small squares, San Sebastian is a mix of summer  ambience and the elegance of a city.

I can identify an architectural style mixed the traditional Spainish construction (for foreign) with Art Noveau elements, clearly French influences, creating the unique style of San Sebastian. The iron worked that exists on the beaches and around the city, is the Art Noveu on maximum exponent. The food, the famous pintxos  and the prices are one of the best things. One of the best places in Spain where I had eat , in every corner there is a wonderful terrace Cafe with an amazing variety of pintxos.

The military remains of old barracks that that once served as a defense still survive at Mount Urgull showing the strength of survival in this town, surrounded by mountains and sea.
