Spain, San Sebastian, day 5

The view we got to wake up to!

We actually went to another church first (Iglesia de Santa Maria), but they were having Mass when we stumbled in. We stayed for a little while.  The sermon (is that what you'd call it??) was nice. He said something about having "yankees come before & how they are welcome". And he talked about the importance of mothers in our society. I thought about my two cute boys back home. We left before they administered the sacrament. We headed for this church below, Iglesia de San Vincente.

I love all the plazas you find all over Spain.

And on the right- I don't know why, but every store in Basque country has this same font used on signs.

Pixtos for lunch. These ones were much tastier than the pixtos we'd tried in Bilbao!

And gelato for dessert.

Monte Urgull.  This hill/mountain that overlooks the city was a defence point as far back as the 12th century, but I believe much of what is shown here was built/reinforced in the 16th century.

  1. Oh, I love your photos! I spent a few days in San Sebastián years ago and loved it. Your pictures took me back. It looks like you had a truly lovely time. :)
