Santa Korda Kalea, 4, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain
At La Cuchara de San Telmo, on the corner of the plaza Valle Lersundi in San Sebastian, the specialties were hot pintxos, quickly prepared to order--from the menu or the specials board, or by pointing to what your neighbor was eating. This was one...
Plaza Zuloaga, 1, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain
Museo San Telmo is a must-see for any art or culture-phile during a visit to San Sebastián. The newly renovated museum's architecture alone makes for fascinating viewing, and there are sections on Basque anthropology as well as revolving...

Kalea Isla de Santa Clara, 2, 20003 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain

San Martin Kalea, Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain
The Charmed Life. Driving into the coastal city, weaving through shirtless surfers and foxy longboarders. How did I even get here? Spanish hospitality allowed us to stay beachside for the weekend. Posh clubs twirls, pintxo hopping, cafe breakfasts...
Bretxa Plaza, 3, 20003 San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa, Spain
La Bretxa shopping center houses the usual trappings of a modern-day shopping mall, but below ground one can find the city's largest and best market for the fruits of the sea. Cold, wet and crowded, this is the spot where you will find both...
