SAN SEBASTIAN: BELLE ÉPOQUE

Hello my lovely readers 🙂 How’s everything going?

Today I want to share with you the pictures that I took in my San Sebastian trip. San Sebastian is a beautiful city in the north of Spain, really close to France. At the start of the 19th century, it became one of the most exciting cities in Europe that’s why it has a beautiful Romantic Area with a pronounced Parisian feel.

Hoy quiero compartir con vosotros las fotos que hice en mi viaje a San Sebastián. San Sebastián es una hermosa ciudad en el norte de España, muy cerca de Francia. A principios del siglo XIX, se convirtió en una de las ciudades más fascinantes de Europa, por eso tiene una hermosa zona romántica con un marcado aire parisino.

The first thing we saw was the María Cristina Bridge. Its fancy streetlights are inspired by the Alexander III Bridge in Paris.

Lo primero que vimos fue el puente María Cristina. Sus elegantes farolas están inspiradas en el Puente Alejandro III de París.

Then we had a nice walk on the side of the river…

Luego dimos un agradable paseo por el lado del río …

And we arrived to the Victoria Eugenia theatre which is where the San Sebastian film festival takes place.

Y llegamos al teatro Victoria Eugenia, que es donde tiene lugar el festival de cine de San Sebastián.

During film festival all the celebrities stay at the Maria Cristina hotel. Hundreds of celebrities have stayed here, from Mata Hari and Bruce Springsteen to stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Gere, Brad Pitt… Of course I was just pretending to go in, I could never afford it 😂

Cientos de celebridades se han alojado aquí, desde Mata Hari y Bruce Springsteen hasta estrellas como Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Gere, Brad Pitt … Por supuesto solo hacía como que entraba, no me lo puedo permitir 😂

Then we arrived to the boulevard, which is the borderline of the romantic area in San Sebastian. In it you can find this beautiful art noveau kiosk.

Luego llegamos al bulevar, que es el límite de la zona romántica de San Sebastián. En él puedes encontrar este hermoso quiosco de estilo art noveau.

After we arrived to Gipuzcoa Square, a beautiful French-style garden from the 19th century. It has a nice lake with a small waterfall, beautiful swans and sculptures. A lot of people were just relaxing in this gardens or reading a book.

Después llegamos a la Plaza de Gipuzkoa, un hermoso jardín de estilo francés del siglo XIX. Tiene un bonito lago con una pequeña cascada, hermosos cisnes y esculturas. Mucha gente simplemente se relaja en este jardín o lee un libro.

Finally we went to the the city hall, which when it was built it was a casino similar to the ones in the French riviera. Next to the casino there is this beautiful carousel that I couldn’t help taking some pictures with it.

Finalmente fuimos al ayuntamiento, que inicialmente era un casino similar a los de la riviera francesa. Al lado del casino está este hermoso carrusel con el cual no pude evitar hacerme fotos.

  1. What a lovely post! That era and Art Nouveau are subjects I’ve studied quite a bit. You may be seeing posts about it (when I start blogging again after a very lazy summer — well, not lazy, but concentrating on other things). I have not yet been to see the Art Nouveau in Spain, but it’s definitely on my list. So far, I’ve concentrated more on France and Belgium, and a little of England. I’m saving your post. Thanks again.

  2. Lovely photos. Perhaps one day I shall get there? While I live in the south of France, I am on the Mediterranean and it is near the Atlantic so it is nearly five hours west of me.
    Thank you for following one of my blogs. 🙂
