Every place in the world has its must see´s: some architectural hot spots, museums, parks, pearls of nature, statues and sport venues. The Basque Country, Euskadi, is not an exception and is primarily known for its stunning nature and delicious food. A person who can say he did not like the Basque food or the breath taking sea views and lush green forests simply does not exist. It is a fact. San Sebastian, the coastal jewel of the Basque Country, is a good ambassador of the local culture with plenty of things to do in town and around it.
