That applies, at the very least, to Donostia-San Sebastián, according to the American newspaper. They recently released an article called '36 Hours in San Sebastián, Spain', underscoring the city´s natural beauty and unrivaled local cuisine and offering suggestions for a memorable visit.
You will never have a blank agenda at weekends: explore the works of the most admired architects (Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava) in Bilbao, discover the ongoing restoration works of the cathedral of Vitoria (inspiration for Ken Follett´s latest novel, 'World without end'), have a taste of tapas at the bars in the old district of San Sebastian, where you will furthermore enjoy Eduardo Chillida´s outdoor works of art.
