Gourmet paradise with 16 michelin stars

Cooking is an art and a Donostia/San Sebastián trademark. Our chefs (Aduriz, Arzak, Berasategui, Subijana, etc.) lovingly tend to their recipes and products to elevate Basque cuisine to an art, turning our city into a leading culinary destination with worldwide fame.

In fact, our city boasts three of Spain's ten Michelin star restaurants, matched by an outstanding selection of restaurants that boast a total of 16 Michelin stars where you can enjoy the excellent fare dished up by the city's culinary artists. Donostia/San Sebastián is one of the cities of the world with the highest number of Michelin stars per square meter (second only to Kyoto, Japan, and well ahead of cities like Paris and Lyon).

The Basque Culinary Center is also located in San Sebastián. This new academic center, which provides undergraduate degrees in the Culinary Arts with the aim of generating advanced knowledge and training skilled professionals, was established as the second culinary university in Europe, further contributing to Donostia/San Sebastián's renown in the culinary world.
