Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you a view taken in the city of San Sebastian, with the famous beach of the conch in the foreground, the island of Santa Clara on the right, the port and the old quarter on the left. I hope you like it, then some letters about the city.

San Sebastián (in Basque Donostia, and officially Donostia / San Sebastián) is a city and Spanish municipality located on the coast of the Bay of Biscay and 20 kilometers from the border with France. The city is the capital of the province of Guipúzcoa, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country. The population of the municipality is 186,665 inhabitants (2018), 7 and its metropolitan area reaches 436 500 (2010). It is the head of the Basque Eurocity Bayonne-San Sebastian, a conurbation of more than 620 000 inhabitants.

Its main economic activities are commerce and tourism, constituting in the past one of the most famous tourist destinations in Spain. Its landscape, dominated by the Bay of La Concha, as well as its modern architectural development begun in the second half of the nineteenth century, which set a city of French and gentrified, led to the development of tourism activity on a European scale. All of this, together with international events such as the San Sebastian International Film Festival, the San Sebastian Jazz Festival, the Musical Fortnight or the Terror Film Festival, has given an outside projection to the city, despite its small dimensions . San Sebastián was European Capital of Culture in 2016 together with Wroclaw, Poland.
