San Sebastián, Spain Culture, food and beaches

It has long been known for gastronomy, but this year San Sebastián is tempting visitors with a packed cultural programme. As the joint European Capital of Culture 2016 (with Wrocław in Poland), its lineup of events include “guerilla lighting actions” to brighten the dark days of January; a music-box festival with gigs in unusual spaces; an art installation involving the city’s fountains; a “caravan of desires” full of erotica travelling through the streets; a Stop the War festival; and Sunday hikes.
