San Sebastian, the beautiful Pearl of the Sea, is a charming Belle Epoque resort built around a crescent-shaped bay. The city was once very formal and was made popular in 1886 by Queen Regent Maria Cristina, but is now a relaxed, family-style resort. It also hosts the International Film Festival every September.
On a panoramic drive through the modern part of the city, you'll see several buildings of architectural and historical interest, including the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd and the Town Hall, the Palace and Gardens of Miramar, the theatre and the luxury hotel named after the Queen.
From the Mount Igeldo viewpoint, admire San Sebastian's picture-postcard setting.
Discover, in the Old Town, a city full of character -- the perfect place for strolling amid shops, bars, restaurants and squares, and the Church of San Vicente.
You will have approximately 1½ hours of free time in San Sebastian to purchase lunch (at your own expense).

A one-hour walking tour through the Old Town takes you to the Parador -- once a medieval defense tower and now an atmosphere-laden hotel.
Tour requires two hours of walking. There are cobblestones in Hondarribia.Wear comfortable walking shoes.
