Exploring San Sebastián #Spain

Today we decided to go and see the ancient walled in city in Hondarribia, also called the ancient old quarter with amazing walls and a castle.

Hondarribia (“sand ford” in Basque, is situated on the west shore of Bidasoa river's mouth, in Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, Spain. The border town is sited on a little promontory facing Hendaye (France) over the Txingudi bay. A service boat makes the trip between the two cities. It's amazing to be able to another country so close.

After walking around the old city, we had lunch at a wonderful little restaurant within the ancient city walls. Restaurant Sebastián was perfect for a light lunch. Not to mention, the room was really charming and our waitress spoke English.

Top: we had ham and bread
