During the annual St.Thomas Day Festival in San Sebastian, farmers bring their prized animals to show off to the public + sell in the city square. One of these was a 4-horned ram! Sad to have magical properties, see it here.
San Sebastián is one of the cities in the world to hold the highest number of Michelin stars per square metre (only beaten by Kyoto in Japan, and well ahead of cities like Paris and Lyon). The city is dotted with “Pintxo” Bars… hosting some very unusual, delicious tapas-like snacks! I especially enjoyed the local wine, “Txakoli”,

San Sebastian (where I got engaged) is the world’s culture capital for 2016! They’re most famous for the little snacks they make (and they make hundreds) at all the bars in the ancient “Old Town” on the water’s edge, every evening from 5pm.
So Napoleon had a forte in a really old town that still exists today in Spain, in the bay of Biscay. I got to hike up a mountain to see it.
