San Sebastian (or Donostia, as we call it there) is the city where I was born. It's a small (180 thousand inhabitants) friendly and beautiful city in the Basque Country - north of Spain, next to France. Apparently not only those who grew up there think it's beautiful - everybody who decides to visit agrees with us. High quality of life, mountains everywhere, a bay with the Santa Clara island in it, the fisher harbor, the old town... If you like food and nature, this is your place. Choose any of the three beaches to spend your summer in a 23 Celsius degrees (74 F) water temperature; or enjoy surfing the nice waves in september - yeah, this is the Athlantic, we got real waves! Practice fishing or enjoy the mountains arround during autumn, and go skiing to the Pirinees during winter until the month May, just when the spring invites you to walk the mountains.

The immediate surroundings of the city of Donostia are equally beautiful

The following photos are from the very near by Pirinean mountains bewteen Spain and France where I used to spend most of my weekends:
