Photo of the week this week is a series of photos taken at the filming of a promotional video for San Sebastian as the Capital of European Culture 2016. I found these at www.diariovasco.com, the Basque newspaper website.
The photos were taken on top of Monte Igeldo, which allows the best view over the bay of La Concha and the island of Santa Clara.
Over 600 people (mostly kids) turned up on the 6th of May, to film a lip-synch video, including clowns and marching bands, dancers and stilt-walkers.
The top of Monte Igeldo can be reached by bus (the number 16 from Plaza Gipuzkoa) or by funicular from the bottom of the hill by Ondaretta Beach.
Emyrent has lovely apartments near both these areas: the Ondaretta holiday rental apartment in San Sebastian is located a 5 minute walk from the funicular and is fully equipped with all you could need for a vacacion in the Basque country.
Events like these are not uncommon here in Donosti, we have a multitude of festivals, events, concerts and occassions to suit every taste. From our Festival of Cinema to the Jazz Festival, from the Semana Grande to the Tamborrada in January; there is definitely something for all the family.
So come along and enjoy the beauty, culture, history and excitement of this famous vacation destination.
Getting to San Sebastian is quite easy, with more than 4 nearby airports and good connections to the rest of Europe by train.
