    San Sebastian has converted during the last years in an example as a turistic destiny in all the world... It has been a visitors explosion that has come from all around the world, especially from english lenguage countries like USA or Australia. But it has not been exclusive of this countries... there are others like France, Rusia or China from has come visitors to taste the gastronomy or to have a bath in La Concha beach. But... what are the reasons of this growth? There is not one reason.... the truth is that San Sebastian has been, historically, a turistic destiny of the spanish high society. But, the terrorism stopped that image as touristic destiny. But, with the end of the terrorism came the growth and then, the explosion... and that has bring the building of many hotel around the city. The reasons of this espectacular growth: 1) MICHELIN STARS To be the city of the world that has the most Michelin stars per resident is a great touristic reclaim. Many people come to San Sebastian to taste one or more Michelin stars restaurants. But not only that, in near towns like Getaria or Fuenterrabia there are also Michelin stars restaurantes.... Arzak, Akelarre, Mugaritz, Mirador de Ulía, Amelia, Kokotxa, Martín Berasategui, Elkano, Zuberoa or Alameda are the restaurants that have, at least one Michelin star. MICHELIN STAR RESTAURANTS GUIDE 2) PUBLICATIONS IN INTERNATIONAL MEDIA From some years to now, the international press has speak about San Sebastian has touristic destiny, espacially the english lenguage press. For example, the New York Times dedicated an article where shows what to do in San Sebastian during 36 hours. You can read the article here... After this article, the New York Times dedicated another one to the city, this time more specific, an article about shopping in Donostia, in Gros neigbordhood. The other big american newspaper, The Washington Post, also dedicated an article to San Sebastian, on this case in its travel section, where the journalist tells his discovery of San Sebastian. Here you can read the full article. The british Independent also speaks about San Sebastian has the spanish gastronomy capital. But not only the traditional press speaks about San Sebastian... the digital media also do. For example, in the Traveller´s Choice Awards La Concha Beach is one of the best beaches in the world. 3) IF THE RICH AND FAMOUS PEOPLE COME... MUST BE FOR SOMETHING! During the last years famous people has been seen walking in San Sebastian, now is something "normal" to see a famous walking in La Concha promenade or in a bar eating a pintxo. Bruce Springsteen has converted in the best ambassador of San Sebastian with his aparitions almost every summers, and not obnly for act in a concert... he is comming for summer holidays. Elsa Pataki and her husband, Chris Hemsworth have been in the city several times. The spanish famous people also come to San Sebastian... like Pau Gasol or David Bisbal. But not only the famous people come to San Sebastian, during the last years is very common to see luxury cars in the city...or a yacht anchored in La Concha Bay or in a near port. This is because big fortunes also come to San Sebastian to eat in a Michelin Star restaurant or to enjoy the city. 4) SAN SEBASTIAN, FILM CITY The 2019 summer will be remembered as the Woody Allen summer in San Sebastian. That summer the american director was filming in San Sebastian. And... even the filming was controversial, it will be an excellent publicity. But, Woody Allen is not the only one that has film in San Sebastian, during the years has been the stage of many films and series as we explain in this post.  Also, we can't forget the San Sebastian International Film Festival. During these years San Sebastian is in a very good moment beacause of these causes we are explaining. 5) INTERNATIONAL PROMOTION  The local autorities also has promoted the city in forums and internatinal fairs. Maybe when it has the biggest impulse was thanks to the European Culture Capital of 2016. Keeping calm with the breeze

    If there is a day where the most traditional and authentic basque culture in San Sebastian is shown that is the December 21, St. Thomas day. It is a day in which everything is basque tradition of the villages where all kinds of products were produced for sale on the market.   Basically, it is a fair of agricultural and cattle industry products of the basque tradition. In the city center and in the Old Town of San Sebastian where hundreds of stalls are selling traditional txistorra, a type of sausage from minced pork, accompanied by cider, the traditional Basque drinks are distributed. Txistorra can be taken with bread or talo, a kind of corn cake, which was formerly used as bread in the villages.   But St. Thomas is more ...much more ... because it is a day in which all citizens participate. The stalls are run by young people from different schools, bars and businesses distribute txistorra  and people dress with the traditional basque dress.   The story of the fair of Santo Tomas is the nineteenth century, when most crops were managed by tenants who paid their rental on St. Thomas day in San Sebastian. So, the baserritarras, farmers and ranchers of the zone, used that day to sell their goods and buy others that they need. So the fair of St. Thomas born, taht´s why the people come dressed with traditional costume.   The Constitution Square is the heart of the fair, where all kinds of craft products like cheese, honey, vegetables, cider, including farm animals are sold.   The main star of the day is the pig of St. Thomas. A huge pig of more than 500 kilos which is displayed in the middle of the Contitucion Square and that is drawn. But do not worry, if you're the winner, there is always some carnage offered to buy it. Throughout the day, the pig becomes the main attraction and people will see it and take pictures.   Txistorra contest, honey contest, contest farm products and even scarecrow contest: various competitions in which different products compete village are also performed.   Keeping clam with the breeze

    One of the most visited areas of San Sebastian, if not the most, is the Old Part of San Sebastian. A place to get lost and where we can taste the best of Basque cuisine. But besides that, it is an area with a lot of history that you have to know thoroughly. First of all we have to know that is the area between the port and Urumea River and between Urgull Montain and Boulevard Avenue. As in many cities, the Old Part of Donostia is the beginning of the city of San Sebastián. Until 1863 it was surrounded by walls, which were demolished to build what we know today as the widening or the center of the city. Until then the city had only 15,000 inhabitants. Until then there is a date is marked to fire. It was August 31 of 1913, when almost all the houses were destroyed and burned during the War of Independence. A single street was saved and nowadays takes the name of this fateful date and that is one one of the famous ones. The neuralgic center of the Old Part of San Sebastian is the Constitution Square, where the City Council of the city was located until the 1940s. Today it is still an important point since there are important dates such as the 20th January, San Sebastian day and party in the city, or December 21, day of St. Thomas. Logically the two oldest churches in the city are also located in the Old Town. They are the Church of San Vicente and the Church of Santa María, and they are barely separated by 250 meters. The construction of the first one started in 1507 and the second one was finished in 1743. Nowadays, the Old Part is the gastronomic temple of the city with streets of obligatory visit like the Fermin Calbetón, the 31 of August, Pescadería or Puerto Street.
