The city beach is long and gorgeous!
(And crowded in summer!)
Every time I saw someone on their way, or street signs telling us we were in fact on the route, I got a bit of a chill, a good vibe. I would love to do it myself one day.
How to spot a 'pilgrim'? Backpacks, good walking boots, sticks, and the characteristic 'concha de Santiago', the shell, as seen on the backpacks of the people in the picture.
The shell is also on street signs, and even on floor tiles on the way;
Apart from San Sebastian, we also visited Zarautz, a beautiful little seaside town just about
half an hour from San Sebastian.
Cosy. Tranquil. Great pintxos & wine. And abeach that made my jaw drop...
We spent the most time in San Sebastian. The rest was mostly beach and food-related. In fact, the only picture I have from the third town we visited, Getxo, is a beach. Sorry about that. But the town itself was pretty too, maybe a bit posh? Anyway, the beach was lovely.
Playa de Arrigunaga; golden sand, beautiful cliffs with a picturesque old windmill on top.
Have you ever been there? Or have you done the 'Camino de Santiago'? Tell me about it!
