Are you into castles and churches? Please visit Vitoria, the capital of the Basque territory in Spain. The most gorgeous medieval buildings, rich food and amazing hospitality. And if you are in the mood for nice beaches, San Sebastian is just 30 minites away.

Compared with other city walls we have visited during our trip these were quite minimal, sadly largely destroyed by later developments in the name of progress.

There is not much of the city walls left and touring around the old town is a bit confusing. What is good is that they have travelators in strategic places so you can get up and down more easily

I enjoyed the tranquillity of the old centre during siesta. This town is a hidden gem. Great food and drinks too.

The old town hides amazing buildings, city walls, stories and great pinchos and cafés. Additionally you have the green ring, with forest and parks all around the city, to hike, walk, ride, run...
