Visit the Plaza de la Constitution and glimpse the iconic Church of San Vincente. Then, venture past the Museo San Telmo—a 16th-century Dominican convent that houses the Museum of Basque Society and Citizenship.
Following your invigorating excursion, allow your guide to suggest a sumptuous spot for lunch at your own expense. Sample one of San Sebastián's acclaimed eating establishments before enjoying a bit of free time to wander the city streets, photographing the landmarks that call to you.
