Donostia/San Sebastian, Euskadi - SPAIN
The first official card from my neighbor country came today from one of my favorite regions there, Euskadia (Basque Country). Both "Donostia" and "San Sebastian" have the same meaning of Saint Sebastian, patron of this beautiful city. If don't know it yet, I strongly recommend a visit and if not before, in 2016 it will be European Capital of Culture. Thank you very much Dani. This postcard took 10 days to arrive!
Donostia (Basque) or San Sebastian (Spanish) is a coastal city and municipality located in the Basque Autonomous Community, Spain. It lies on the coast of the Bay of Biscay, only 20 km from the French border. Locals call themselves donostiarra (singular), both in Spanish and Basque. San Sebastián's picturesque shoreline makes it a popular beach resort. The seaside environment is enhanced by hilly surroundings that are easily accessible.
