My trip around San Sebastian continues on… the next day we were up early for some coffee and breakfast in one of the many sqaures San Seb has to offer. This particular one below is Constitution Square which in the past was used for entertainment.
I loved these apartments surrounding the square. The gorgeous yellow and grey exterior and every window one was numbered. I later researched that all of the numbers in the past on each window were provided as numbers for boxes when watching bullfights from above.
Breakfast was average with a coffee and pastry combo, do let me know if you happen to find a good brunch place in San Seb as we couldn’t…
We then just wondered the streets and took in all of the architecture, the huge churches and cathedrals and some very good shopping (in my opinion probably the best shopping in Europe)
Everywhere you look up there is always leafy trees, beautiful iron-caste balconies and large welcoming doorways.
Below is the stunning City Hall, a wonderful building which was originally built 1887 as a casino, it was by far my favourite building in San Seb.
Walking towards the Basilica of Santa Maria, a truly outstanding building and I now wish that I walked inside.
A lovely looking Hotel with the most stunning pink flowers on the balcony.
The weather was heating up, the clouds were clearing and it was starting to get warm. So we left the hustle and bustle of the city and headed for the beach, swimming cossies and towels in tow.
By lunchtime there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was time to hit the beach after a quick beer and salad to keep up going.
The water was fresh, but not unbearable. Such a wonderfully safe and clean harbour to swim in, with little waves and sometimes if you are lucky the occasional dolphin comes in for a play
I couldn’t help but finish off this blogpost with the photo below of what I thought look like frogs basking in the sun 😉
