Welcome to Places People Purpose! In today's episode, we delve deeper into the captivating town of San Sebastian, exploring its rich culinary scene, historical landmarks, and vibrant cultural events. Let's jump right in!

🌍 Episode Highlights:

- Basque Culinary Haven In the post-World War II era, San Sebastián transformed into a culinary haven, gaining global acclaim for its contribution to Basque cuisine. The city's chefs and restaurants, celebrated for their innovation and tradition, showcase their mastery in pintxos bars, offering a delightful array of exquisite dishes. From family-run taverns to modern kitchens, San Sebastián is a foodie’s paradise, boasting melt-in-your-mouth meats and ocean-fresh seafood.

- Exploring Parte Vieja The Old Town, known as Parte Vieja, with its narrow cobblestone streets, offers a journey back in time. Astelena and Bar Sport, two establishments in this historic area, combine awesome pintxos with a lively atmosphere. Notable too is the 16th-century Gothic Church of San Vicente, surviving Napoleon's destructive fire in 1813, making it the oldest building in San Sebastián.

- Plaza de la Constitución: The heart of the old town, Plaza de la Constitución, dates back to 1817 and was once a bullring, evident in its numbered balconies. Today, it houses the public library and the city’s cultural department. If you find yourself in San Sebastián on January 20th, witness the Tamborrada, a unique drum festival celebrating the city’s patron saint.

- Kursaal: A Cultural Icon Home to the San Sebastián International Film Festival, the Kursaal Conference Centre and Auditorium, a Mies van der Rohe Award winner, stands as a contemporary architectural masterpiece. Rafael Moneo's design, resembling giant rocks, hosts various cultural events, conferences, and festivals. The guided tours provide insight into its construction, boasting over 10,000 glass panels.

- Scenic Beaches and City Vibes San Sebastián’s beauty extends to its beaches, with Playa de la Concha considered one of Europe’s finest urban beaches. Zurriola Beach, a haven for surfers, adds a vibrant touch to the city’s atmosphere.

San Sebastián, a vibrant hub of culture, tourism, and culinary innovation, stands as a testament to its post-World War II recovery. Preserving its rich heritage, the city continues to evolve, welcoming visitors from around the globe.
