The Beautiful Easo
San Sebastián has been known for its beauty since the 19th century. Its jaw-dropping beaches, bay, island and hills provide the natural backdrop to its refined architecture, consisting of a mix of traditional buildings in the style of the Belle Époque, such as the City Hall and the Victoria Eugenia Theatre, and modern ones, such as the Kursaal Congress Centre and the Tabakalera Contemporary Art Centre. Oteiza and Chillida's numerous open-air sculptures, including the iconic The Comb of the Wind, are also worth a visit.
The city is nestled in the mountains, but its flat downtown area takes runners on a tour of all these places along the course of one of the fastest marathons in Spain.
The experience is certain to wrap up at a pintxo table or bar, as is only natural in the gastronomical capital of Southern Europe. From the stunning variety of pintxos to haute cuisine and delicious txuletón stakes, married with a local cider or txakolí, you will be spoilt for choice for a hearty meal to cap an incomparable sports tourism experience after your effort.
