Donostia - San Sebastián is located in the northeast of the Spanish Basque Country: 110 km from Bilbao, 500 km from Madrid, and 800 km from Paris. It is a charming medium-size city set in a picturesque countryside, on the edge of the Biscay Gulf and surrounded by mountains. A city of deep-rooted international tourist tradition dating back to the 19th century, San Sebastián offers quite a few tourist attractions, a varied choice of hotels and one of the most creative gastronomies in the world.
