San Sebastian Kursaal noche

The capitals of 2016 culture are Breslava (Poland) e San Sebastián (Spain).

These 2 Cities will shine with a new light for the next 12 months; Kanoa recommends going to the beautiful San Sebastián where the theme will be that of "culture for the convivenza"

With the aim of promoting a better way to live between art and culture.
A calendar of over 400 events that will illuminate this initial glimpse of the 2016.

We start the 20 January, with the traditional Traborrada (spectacular city festival); the events will be held in theaters, galleries, museums, libraries, and among these the Kursaal, the building Icon of the city designed by Rafael Moneo.

The opening ceremony will be held on January 23 and will be directed by Hansel Cereza. As soon as the sunset begins, you can experience a wonderful play of light and performance that will be set on the bridges of the Urumea River.

From the month of February it will open Time machine soup: a journey through time in which every spectator can try 12 different typical dishes, from those prepared in caves up to the most recent ones.

How to get
From Italy there are no direct flights to San Sebastián, but from the airports of Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino you can fly with Iberia and Vueling making a stopover in Madrid or Barcelona.
