Experience Basque culture at its best this December - St Thomas’ Day in San Sebastian

Held on 21st December, the festival dates back to the days when farmers from the surrounding villages would bring their harvest to the city, and today it retains its rural roots through the exhibition of farm animals and vegetables.

The real attraction, though, is the traditional delicious local food and drink for which the Basque country is so famous, including cheese, honey, vegetables, and of course, the star of the show, txistorra salami!

This particular festival is one that is very important to local people, as is evident from the crowds that gather in the Constitution square and other parts of the Old Town.

Visiting San Sebastian over St Thomas’ Day will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to experience an authentic Spanish festival, and more than that, to have the pleasure of doing so in one of the most beautiful cities in the whole of Spain.
