Destination Management San Sebastian
The idea of San Sebastian to become European Capital of Culture in 2016 has built the entire project will around: “Waves of people’s energy”. This basic idea sums up the “soul” of the “San Sebastian 2016” in a clear message: people and movements of citizens are the real driving force behind transformations and changes in the world. They provide the vital civic energy that makes societies advance and progress. Citizens, in short, play the leading role in the search for solutions to new global challenges.
San Sebastian and its surrounding area is home to a high concentration of restaurants boasting Michelin stars, namely Arzak (San Sebastian), Berasategi (Lasarte), Akelarre (district Igeldo), to mention but a few. Adding to these cooking highlights, the city features tasty snacks similar to tapas called pintxos, which may be found at the bars of the Old Part. San Sebastian is also world widely famous for its San Sebastian International Film Festival, taking place each year in the city in September.
