From the ´Mercado de la Bretxa´, walking through the city’s old part, to the Port, we find different tracks and places of the city's past. Testimonies to discover and learn more about the inhabitants, the society and the Basque culture of Donostia- San Sebastián.
66th International Film Festival of San Sebastián With the change of the seasons, the ´Zinemaldia 2018´ is upon us. Every year in September the city transforms into a big stage for 9 days on which actors, directors, producers, critics, journalists, cinephiles, autograph chasers and many other people come and enjoy "the seventh art".

Walk around the city, visit different places, enjoy typical cuisine or join on of the festival´s sessions are fantastic experiences through which we sharpen our senses and abilities for learning: audition, reading and speaking interaction.

The vacation period turns the city into a wonderful mix of cultures and a true paradise for tourists. A common misconception seems to be that there is no life after summer. We beg to differ!
