San Sebastián
San Sebastián, or Donostia in the Basque language, is a playground for the senses: Framed by the aquamarine Bay of Biscay and a ring of green mountains, the European beach town is as lovely as it is rich in culture. Part of Spain's autonomous Basque Country, the region is home to a proud and independent people, and the city's unique language and culture bear little relation to the rest of the Iberian peninsula. Many of the world's top chefs list San Sebastián as their favorite destination, and the city has more Michelin stars per inhabitant than any other city in the world.
