One of Northern Spain’s top tourist destinations, San Sebastian, or Donostia as the Basques call it, is located on the Bay of Biscay just a few miles from France. It’s best known for its great beaches, but there are also pretty cathedrals and other attractions in San Sebastian to see, including an international film festival. It is not only the capital but also the soul of Spain’s Basque community. The Basques have their own language and culture, one that is different from Spain, but no less rich than what’s found elsewhere in Spain. It’s almost like getting two countries for the price of one.
