Just 20 kilometers away from the french border lies San Sebastian, Guipúzcoa’s capital city and part of the Basque Country Autonomous Community. San Sebastian – or Donostia (in euskera language) is one of the peninsula’s most visited beach resorts, and also widely known by the international film festival held there.
Visiting San Sebastian, given the city’s popularity, is a simple thing to do. The Airport of San Sebastian is 20 kilometers away from the city, and transfer options include taxi, train, bus and private transfers. All options are feasible, though the relatively long distance that separates the airport from the city makes private transfers a bit more attractive and efficient.
San Sebastian is by the Cantabrian Sea, framed by the famous (and picturesque, above all) Concha Bay. Curiously, the city gets more rain than almost any other place in Spain; the climate is classified as oceanic, with moderate, nice temperatures all-year-round and hot, humid summers.
The city’s foundation is not quite clear, but historians attribute it to king Sancho ‘The Wise’ of Navarra, in the year 1180. The city was conceived as a seaport for the Navarran Crown, but the port saw little progress until the Castilian Crown took control of the region. Until the 15th century, San Sebastian got involved up in many regional conflicts and a massive fire destroyed most of its buildings in the year 1489.
The city was reconstructed in stone, and was used as a military garrison and commercial port for the next four centuries. During the 19th and 20th centuries, San Sebastian would trade its military profile for a tourist-friendly one. Prosperity and growth ensued, and hospitality and services soared. After Franco’s dictatorship and the Basque industry’s collapse, San Sebastian’s experienced an economic downturn, but urban development and tourism kept the city alive.
