Are you coming at Easter?

Here are a few ideas to make your visit to San Sebastián a perfect one.


You can´t miss them...


Eating a pintxo: Going for pintxos in San Sebastián is a way to learn about our culture; you’ll enjoy laughs and conversation as you stay on the move, visit busy bars and generally have a great time.


Having your picture taken in the Concha Bay: The Concha Bay is San Sebastián’s snapshot par excellence: it is the most typical, the one most pictures are taken of, the most visited... The Concha Beach is right in the city centre.


Enjoying the parks and nature: San Sebastián has a marvellous natural green landscape, surrounded by mountains and with numerous parks and gardens. Discover our mountains, parks and gardens and enjoy the city's most natural side


Taking a seven kilometre stroll from the Zurriola beach to the Peine del Viento sculptures (closed for works) : This stroll offers you the chance to discover all  three beaches in San Sebastián. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the way.  


Eating the first ice cream of the season: One of our spring and summer traditions is to eat the wonderful ice cream of Donostia. A ice cream cone or a tub of ice cream?


Discovering the districts of San Sebastian: San Sebastián is divided into three main areas, each with its own personality, partly reflected in its three magnificent beaches.


Get ready to take to the streets, because San Sebastián is like a huge open-air shopping centre. Although at Easter some shops close, many others stay open, above all in Downtown and the Old Town. If...

You’re in San Sebastián! … The foodie Mecca, the crème de la crème of good eating and finger-licking cuisine. Here you'll find whatever you want, from Michelin stars (did you know that San Sebastián is the city with most Michelin stars per square metre in the world?) to pintxo bars, vegetarian options, cider houses, restaurants serving international cuisine... As many suggestions as there are colours. Don’t waste time, consult our Restaurant Guide.


You still have time! There is no tradition more typically Basque than going to a cider house. This means tasting some of the best Basque ciders that are poured directly from the barrel to the shout of Txotx! This custom began as a private tasting session among wholesalers who came to the cider houses to pick the best ciders. Over time, this custom really caught on and became the most famous gastro-event in the Basque Country.

There is 4 holidays on this period of Eastern week (29,30 march and 1,2 april). During those 4 days many shops Will be closed out of the old town, but it is quite easy to find some open principaly in the old town .31st of march everything Will be open. Bars, restaurants and all visiting places Will be open during all those 5 days, as eastern week is high season and many visitors come to our City.

Best regards!
