2007 Women Satellite in San Sebastian





San Sebastian is the provincial capital of Guipuzcoa, in the Basque Country

This city is known for its beaches. San Sebastian has three beaches situated in the middle of the City. They are Playa de La Concha, Ondarreta and Playa de Gros/La Zurriola.

La Concha is the most centrally located and most famous. The beach is spread out in a crescent form that stretches around the bay. This is the best of three beaches.

Ondaretta is right next to the La Concha. This beach isn't as crowded as it's neighbor. The Palacio Miramar, once a summer home of Spanish royalty, is right next to the beach.

Another important attraction is the Basque cuisine, which is famous within Spain and many believe it is the Basque Country where you can find the best food. Much of this fame comes from San Sebastian and its bars and restaurants. Although tapas were invented in Andalucia they became perfected in San Sebastian and a walk through the old town before lunch time with its many bars shows why. Each bar is bursting with tapas and they look very delicate.




San Sebastian has a Naval Museum and Aquarium at its harbor, plus a science park and leisure center. Or just book one treatment after another at La Perla Seawater Fitness Centre on La Concha Beach and the day will fly by in a massage stupor.

Yet for all their cachet, San Sebastian's beaches are just one choice along the coastline from the French border to the western edge of the Basque country.
