Postcard San Sebastián
Lotza‘s illustrated postcard depicts the beautiful city of San Sebastian in all its glory. With its view of La Concha beach, the Sacred Heart statue, the town hall and the old quarter, this illustration captures the essence of this seaside town.
San Sebastian, also known as Donostia in Basque, is located in the province of Guipúzcoa, in the Spanish Basque Country. The city is famous for its natural beauty and elegant architecture. La Concha beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, offering spectacular views of the mountains and the sea.
The statue of the Sacred Heart, located on the mountain Urgull, is a symbol of the city. It was erected in 1950 in recognition of the protection of the city during the Spanish Civil War. The San Sebastian City Hall is also an emblematic monument of the city, with its neoclassical architecture.
The old quarter, also known as Parte Vieja, is one of the liveliest areas of San Sebastian, with its narrow streets and historic buildings. There are also many tapas bars, restaurants and local stores. San Sebastian has a long history, dating back to Roman times. The city has been destroyed and rebuilt several times over the centuries, and experienced significant growth in the 19th century with the arrival of wealthy tourists and Spanish nobility.
All in all, this illustration by Lotza is a wonderful representation of San Sebastian, reminding us of the history and beauty of this picturesque seaside town.
