Anoeta and Ciudad Deportiva
At the southern end of town is Anoeta Stadium, home of the soccer team Real Sociedad (Gora Erreala!!!!!!). If you're there during the soccer season, try and see a game. Great tickets won't cost much more than 30 euros. There are a number of other sports related in the same area as the stadium. There are two Frontons (the 'field' to play the popular Basque sport of Pelota - Jai Alai is a version of this sport), the Velodromo (where Bullfights are held), a skate park (skate boarding and roller blading), a soccer field and track, swimming pools, and an ice skating rink. If you skate, bring you skate board or roller blades. If you want to run, swim, or ice skate, bring what ever equipment you need. If you just want to watch, just bring yourself. And always root for the home team.
Comb of the wind
Placed in the end in the Donostia beach, "La Concha". It's a lovely place, made in a way that is difficult to know where the builded starts. You can walk, and see the iron sculptures. Attention, when the tide is high, you can get swet. In the comb of the wind, it seems like the wind, the water, and the earth play together. The sculptures of Chillida, wonderful.
Situat al final de la platja de Sant sebastià, "La Concha". És un lloc encantador, fet d'una manera que és difícil saber on comença allò construït i on acaba allò natural. Quan la marea puja, l'aigua colpeja per tot arreu, i heu d'anar amb compte de no mular-vos. A la pinta dels vents, sembla com si el vent, l'aigua i la terra juguen junts. Les escultures de Chillida són meravelloses
La Catedral del Buen Pastor
La Catedral del Buen Pastor is a towering neo-Gothic Cathedral in the Ensanche that serves as the seat of the diocese of San Sebastian. It was inaugurated in 1897 and the story goes that the architect responsible for the Cathedral’s design was inspired by the Cologne Cathedral – which is likely why this building is not only neo-Gothic by also shows signs of Late Gothic style. Its bell-tower is quite high – 75 metres to be exact – which is what allows it to be a landmark for the surrounding area. The cathedral has rather short opening hours, so make sure that you check them before heading out to see it. The fact that it is in the Ensanche means that it is fairly far from the other main attractions of the city, so it’s not like you can do a few more things on your list and then easily hop back to see the Cathedral.
I am in San sebastion in Spain, I have just been to a Tapas bar where nobody spoke any English and we had no idea what we were ordering. Tapas is very creamy with coconut and tuna and prawns and stuff in a pastry kind of thing, We are going to find somewhere else that serves something different now. It is a public holday in spain tommorrow so I cant go shopping. the weather is very warm I might have to go to the beach tommorow. must go JO.
Singing in the Rain...
"Donostia - San Sebastian, a glamorous city..."
Our second Pearl Jam show was in San Sebastian. We travelled from Barcelona to Donostia by car with our Spanish friends Juanma, Miguel and Marcos and arrived at SS on May 26th. Unluckily, it was raining, so we weren't able to walk, we had to move by car. We looked for a place to stay and rushed to the Anoeta Velodromo, as the show was about to start. After the great show we went to have some drinks with our friends and then went to sleep, because we had to wake up early in the morning the next day. On May the 27th we took a bus to Bilbao, which drove down a route surrounded by a magnificent landscape of mountains and valleys. We arrived at Bilbao and rushed! (again) to the airport, it was a pity that we didn't have time to walk around the city...
