The city of San Sebastián-Donostia (St. Sebastian)

Origins

From pre-historic times, Gipuzkoa was the home to Vascons, who laid the bases of their own culture thanks to their language, beliefs and lifestyles. The origins of San Sebastián are lost in time as no specific documents are available about the first settlement. The oldest document dates back to 1014.
In the 13th century, Sancho the Wise of Navarre granted the Fuero de San Sebastián (code of laws), which marked the chronological beginning of its history.

Activity

Together with other ports along the coast, fishermen from this town were some of the first to be involved in whale fishing and the town's activity soon spread to other industrial and commercial areas.
