Old Town

San Sebastian is a very popular place, especially with the wealthy Spaniards and we quickly got denied at the San Sebastian campground. After two more denials, we finally found a spot on the top of a hill in Zarautz, several km's down the coast. We had a great view from our cliff top site, & the trek down the hill was worth it for the swim in the nice, long beach.

It was fairly easy to get the train into SS, but the weather was still not quite back up to what we were hoping for. San Sebastian was covered in low cloud with a chilly breeze about. We walked up Monte Urgall to the huge statue of Jesus & a good view of the area. There was a very lively atmosphere in the Old Town, all the locals were out for Sunday lunch in the many Tapas bars in Parte Vieja. We joined them & had some great little bits of Tapas, which is surprisingly filling! After a walk around the two perfect shaped beaches we headed back to Zarautz and drove onto Castro Urdialles via a coastal drive around Mundaka. We spent the night free parked in a beach car park & watched the WC final in a smoky, little pizza café...
