The Basque region in Northern Spain is superb. Sitting very close to the French border and west of the Pyrenees, San Sebastián is arguably the little gem of this part of Spain.
The town is a popular stop off for Busabout, attracting people for its chilled out vibe, excellent food, surfing and gorgeous sightseeing. None better in my opinion than the stunning views you can get by taking the cable car up to Monte Igueldo which overlooks the Playa del Concha, the old town in the distance and off the other side of the cliffs the Bay of Biscay.
You really get the feeling of what it might be like as an Eagle up at the top. It really is so high up and it’s a fantastic vantage point looking down over the Playa. No visit to San Sebastián is complete without taking a trip up to Monte Igueldo!
