Estuary landmarks: Bridges, Centro Niemeyer and Church of Sabugo
If you keep walking towards the river, you will reach the modern side of the city, crossing the La Grapa bridge and then the rainbow coloured San Sebastian bridge, leading to the Centro Niemeyer, a cultural centre designed by Oscar Niemeyer. It has an auditorium, film centre, an exhibition room and a large square surrounding it. The architecture is very modern, with a lot of curves on the buildings and minimal in colours.Kalli K
Basque and Bilbao : Sun and Art in Spain.
Sun. Blue skies. Gelato for days. It sounds great doesn’t it? I’ll let you in on a secret – it is great! I visited Basque Country during the European summer of 2015, it was my first real taste of Spain outside of Madrid and it was well worth the trip north. Here’s how it looked.

Spain: Lost in the Northern Spain
Then there is the less known big Spanish cities. Zaragoza, Pamplona and San Sebastian. Some of you might know Pamplona for its notorious festival San Fermín, commonly known as the running of the bulls. The whole city is filled with people dressed in white from head to toe, with some read accessories. The sight is incredible, because really, seems like absolutely everybody from babies to grandpa’s in the city got the memo to wear this traditional outfit.Laura Kia Maria

Trains & Buses:
The first two airports serve the most international destinations. Trains & Buses: RENFE (the Spanish train service) and SCNF (the French train service) have connections running to Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris daily. Bus services such as PESA, ALSA, VIBASA, EKIALDEBUS, and TERMIBUS run daily to major cities such as Madrid, and closer cities, such as Pamplona. Many people choose to do Bilbao and San Sebastian over a weekend; this route is particularly well served by train and bus transport.Camila Lama
