San Sebastian, a basque city that deserves the visit
The jewel in the Basque crown, San Sebastian sits regally on a crescent bay, surrounded by rolling hills. Gourmands flock to Spain’s culinary capital to sample its inventive tapas, fresh seafood and Michelin-starred meals, while fashionable visitors stroll along San Sebastian’s chi-chi beach promenade.
The old city houses some monuments that are worth the detour: the San Vicente gothic church, the Santa María del Coro baroque church and the old convent, today museum of San Telmo presenting interesting archaeological and ethnological collections.
Follow the living streets and reach the square of the Constitución, used originally as an arena. On the "Gros" beach, you can admire the modern architecture of the "Kursaal" (concert hall) , created by the architect Rafael Moneo . Don’t miss one of the main events of San Sebastian: the "Tamborrada".

- "Disappointing" Suellen r. 27/10/2013
This train was 1 1/2 hours late arriving in Barcelona. It stopped (not at a station) frequently for long periods at a time during the journey, which we could not understand. The train would no sooner pick up speed after having been stopped for 5 - 15 minutes and then it would slow down and stop again. It was a tedious trip.
- "Great Trip" Vincent k. 19/09/2013
We had an opportunity to travel by rail from San Sebastian to Madrid and wanting to see the country side we decided to take the trip. From the moment we checked in to embarking and disembarking everthing exceeded our expectations. The train trip itself was exceptionally good as it afforded us an opportunity to view a portion of the country and this gave us a good idea of the rest of the country. The train ride was excellent and comfortable.Will definitely use the train in future.

Train ride was fantastic, I had a little issue with tickets, missing one train, but managed to get on another train the following day at no extra cost.
- "First Class" Richard w. 24/07/2013
I found the seating, luggage space, toilet and cafeteria car service all consistent with my expectations of first class rail travel.
