5 reasons to choose San Sebastián as destination MICE

San Sebastián is one of the main MICE destinations in Spain. Considered one of the main tourist destinations nationally and internationally for its outstanding cuisine and its fantastic landscapes that has driven to have a tourist growth in recent years.
There are 5 reasons to choose the city of San Sebastian as MICE destination:

1.  Ocean and mountain. City that offers marvelous landscapes of sea and excellent mountains both in the city itself and in its surroundings. Of beach it emphasizes mainly Beach of the Shell, emblematic and very characteristic place, ideal to bathe, to take the sun, or to walk calmly for the walk. As for the mountain, Mount Igueldo stands out, a place from which you can see the entire city of San Sebastian from above and enjoy wonderful views. It can be accessed through the mythical funicular that connects the lower part of the city with the mountain.

2.  Cultural city. It is a coastal city, quiet and attractive that every year is visited by millions of tourists. It is a city that promotes the organization of festivals and concerts in its streets and emblematic areas of the city.

3.  Festivals. Donostia is also known for its film and jazz festivals, which in turn turn out to be an important tourist resource for those who love cinema and music. The first of them turns out to be one of the most important cinematographic events at European level, since it receives great movie stars worldwide. The second is another event that takes place of the most important jazz music in this country for lovers of this type of music.

4.  Gastronomy. It is probably one of the main tourist attractions of this city: its cuisine. Destination historically known for its contribution to modern cuisine and its chefs, many of them known internationally, including Martin Berasategui himself. Spain has three restaurants with a Michelin star, and all three are in Donostia. Despite this, the main claim is the Pintxos, a dish with a small portion of bread accompanied by any type of ingredient on top, and a skewer is placed on top to keep everything together.

5.  Hotel infrastructure. Donostia is an exceptional place to celebrate all kinds of professional conventions. This is demonstrated by its modern hotel infrastructure; its meeting rooms, mainly with the Kursaal Center, and its quality of services. Are you planning to travel to San Sebastian with your group or company?
