It is located in the Basque Country, in northern Spain. All along the length of its coastline, part of what is known as the Basque Coast, there are spectacular beaches on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea, and the unusual geological formations of the cliffs of Deba and Zumaia.
One of the best-known images of this area is the view of the bay of La Concha in the capital, Donostia-San Sebastián. This city is a perfect combination of noble houses and modern architecture; as seen in buildings such as the Palacio Kursaal conference centre, where the famous San Sebastián International Film Festival is held. Also worth visiting along the coast are seaside towns such as Zarautz, Getaria, Mutriku and Hondarribia, which offer a range of cultural attractions.
