Its 75-metre high tower rises in the shape of a needle that can be seen from almost every part of the city.

San Telmo Museum
San Telmo Museum is the largest centre dedicated to interpreting Basque society, right in the heart of the city’s Old Town.
Basilic of Sta. María del Coro
Dating back to the 18th Century, it was built over an old temple, that’s why it is considered the oldest church in the city.
Get lost in the streets of “La Parte Vieja”, discover hidden corners and soak up on the culture and history that each of the buildings display.
A former tobacco factory now converted into a contemporary culture centre full of coolness. Don’t miss the roof terrace with awesome city views.
Waves, surf and youngsters. These are the main features of the Zurriola Beach, liveliest and vibiest stretch of sand in the city. It’s our favourite too!
Bonus track for foodies
Get to know the local food markets
Most of you wonder about what to eat in San Sebastián, as, with its record number of Michelin stars, it is known popularly as the gastronomic capital of Spain. The great success of Basque gastronomy is undoubtedly the savoir-faire, but choosing premium and local ingredients is truly a game changer. Go to the traditional markets and see it for yourself, if you get lucky you'll run into the most renowned chefs.
The oldest local market of the city and gateway to the old part of San Sebastian. Its name comes from the location in this area of the walls of protection of the city. The story goes that it was here that the French troops managed to open a "breach" in the wall and besiege the city.
