    GREAT video, guys.I have been to over 60 countries and the Basque country totally changed everything for me. I even started writing because of it! I spent time in Bilbao and Getxo but I have not had the chance to see Donastia yet. This video inspires me to go to this city and really take some time to absorb it.

    5:29 Actually, 'La Tamborrada' has a very different origin, being more of a carnival party where some people marched in groups playing drums and other instruments for fun. Sometimes on bad times at night lol. Throught the years (we are talking 20's here) this event got more popular and also serious and ended being the most important party each 20 of January of San Sebastián. These companies roam throught all our city that day.

    The thing you talk about, though, is the August 31th celebration, which was the day the English and Portuguese destroyed and pillaged our city, which is remembered each year by playing 'tamborradas' only in the old part. They also fire fake old rifles and cannons. They even play pipes, is pretty espectacular.

    And, lastly, TODAY, me included, we celebrate the 'Gaztelu Eguna' (Day of the Castle), which commemorates the 'Actas de Zubieta' which had place on september 7 and meant the rebuild and resurrection of our city. To me, the best-party-ever.

    By the way, did you know there are nothing but one of the very, very few cannons left of the 1588 Invincible Armada in Urgull? In excellent shape, nonetheless… and no, it's not the beautiful, huge 'Rosita Wicke' lol.

    Anyway, sorry for the long post, your video was excellent. Thank you!

    I just got back and it’s such a cool
    Spot. The cheap food and drink is world class. Surf is good and people are friendly. Also an easy drive to Hossegor…another great spot, especially for bikelife

    Best video I ever saw about San Sebastian. Great Bro's. Next time make sure you come and visit me in the mountains. You are mostly invited. Don't spend money for a hotel. Have two great room at the end of the road. Even Google maps can't show you the way. ???? We just returned to the Basque Country after 18 years for ever ⚰️. For me and my 4 orphan Street dogs the best place on earth, after living in several places around the world. Check us out on Instagram : https://instagram.com/the_writers_home?igshid=cmhkc2xc7ijf

    No olvidarse de hablar acerca del ex alcalde pederasta Odón Elorza.Y todo el lío que se ha montado con Kote Cabezudo el fotógrafo que abusaba de menores,la agencia First Models que le llevaba a las niñas menores de edad a Cabezudo y muchas veces pagado con dinero público concedido por Odón Elorza ya que era el ayuntamiento quien financiaba los concursos de modelos en la ciudad,el Ojos Bonitos,etc.

    I went to that little cemetery in 2015, it had been vandalised, presumably by a separatist ("Spain" was scored out)

    One of my favourite places to visit.

    Next time you go to North Spain check out Ourense in Galicia, go to the hot springs and take a walk in the woods round there. Excellent craic!
