BASKING WITH THE BASQUES
It’s a pilgrimage every foodie should make at least once in their life – a rendezvous with the unofficial food capital of the Basque Country: San Sebastian. KAYAK.com.au senior country manager, APAC, Robin Chiang, says San Sebastian continues to attract travellers from across the world who are looking to soak up the Spanish sun and embrace the lively culture.
“My recommendation would be to visit Old Town, indulging in the different cafes and bars, tasting the different pintxos,” he says.
If you’re overwhelmed by choice, join a tour like Urban Adventures’ “Grab your Pintxo”, to sample six different pintxos, along with local txakoli wine and cider.
“Another amazing way to see the sites is to bike ride through the city, escaping the chaos of the downtown centre for the local flavours of the neighbourhoods,” Chiang says. “For a truly cultural experience, visit the La Concha where you can wander from the City Hall to the Comb of the Wind sculpture. You can gaze at the incredible sculpture complex designed and built by famed architect Luis Peña Ganchegui.”
