We flew from Barcelona to San Sebastian early this morning. The flight was just under an hour long
and I could tell from the air that we were going to like this area. The rolling hills we're dotted with little white houses with tera cotta roofs. I could see La Concha Bay from the air. This would be our home for the next three nights.
Our six€ cab ride delivered us to Parador El Emperador in the old part of San Sabastian. A parador is a government owned hotel and ours was once a fortress that dates back to the 16th century.
This is the view of the bay from our hotel room.
There is a beautiful terrace overlooking the Basque coast and the boats below where you can have a drink and soak up the quiet.
The old walled city has narrow streets just barely wide enough for a car
and charming shops and tiny restaurants.
This is the front of our fortress, I mean, hotel
and these are the houses and shops that line the square just outside our door.
Tonight we will take a bus into the main part of San Sabastian for dinner at a Michelin three star restaurant. They say San Sabastian has the greatest proportion of Michelin stars per square meter in the world. I doubt we will go hungry while here!
