OT: Tapas in San Sebastian










Tapas are called pintxos and San Sebastián is the perfect place to taste them. For an introduction into tapas-testing culture click HERE. Please note tapas can be tasted also at noon. I took these pictures last week-end in Donostia-San Sebastián (Casco Viejo –Old Quarter– and Plaza de la Constitución).

    Thanks for the photos and the tempting tapas or pintxos. We might return to Northern Spain next year for our wedding anniversary health and finances permitting because we loved Burgos, Leon and Santiago del Compostela a few years ago.
