24 Hours in San Sebastian (Our Winning Entry)

Our entry video into MyDestination’s Biggest, Baddest, Bucket List contest, the one that won us a six month trip around the world!  We show you how to spend 24 hours in the coolest city in Europe – San Sebastian, known locally as Donosti.

Since making this film we’ve seen a lot of the world, but Donosti remains one of our favorite places so far.  Hope to come back soon!

 

Tamborrada: The Beat of a Basque Drum

Napoleonic soldiers and pot-bellied chefs storm the streets of San Sebastian, Spain for a massive showdown – a city-wide drum battle called the Tamborrada. But what’s with the costumes and why are locals so stoked about this fiesta?

Before we crack open our beers, we hear the stories from the city’s darkest days and learn why so many people are proud to be from San Sebastian.
