Western Europe Summer 2011 Trip Timeline

San Sebastian Panoramic – The Most Beautiful City in Spain?

From one beautiful city to the next, we traveled from Barcelona to the northern city of San Sebastian, or Donostia, as it is known in the native Basque Country language of Euskara. This has probably been our favorite city of our entire trip so far. Maybe second favorite behind Barcelona. There are a hundred different amazing things about this city, but looking back at this panoramic shot it is easy to say that this view, and the beauty of this beach, are reason number one. The late night casino where I couldn’t lose might be number two.

As always, you can click the photo to enlarge it.
San Sebastian, SpainThis photo is a combination of eleven photos and was taken from atop a large hill right along the shore. The shoreline see is probably between two and three kilometers in length. The hill is adorned with a large statue of Jesus Christ that looks over the city. Originally the hill served as a strategic location and it is also home to a large fort that protected the city. This was my first attempt at taking, and putting together a panoramic shot. Seriously, my first attempt ever, so I had no idea what I was doing and it is far from perfect. I hope, however, it gives you an accurate glimpse of the beautiful crescent beach of San Sebastian, Spain, and all that it has to offer.
