Full description

Get to know San Sebastian at your own pace with this interactive smartphone game and walking tour. Decipher riddles, interact with the most important attractions of the city, and unlock interesting facts.

After downloading the scavenger hunt tour on your mobile device use the mobile app and integrated maps to reach 10 of San Sebastian's most important attractions on foot. At each stop, learn about the attraction and solve a location-based riddle that can only be at the specific location. 

Use logic, imagination, observation, and team spirit to unlock the correct code and reveal the next destination on the tour. As you walk through the city, enjoy the flexibility to pause your game at any time to take a break, snap the perfect photos, stop for lunch, or visit a museum.

Choose to continue the tour later or save the rest for another day. Start your tour from the much-photographed Bridge of Maria Cristina. Visit the San Sebastian Cathedral to admire its absolute architectural dominance over the city. Visit Plaza Cervantes and enjoy the statue of Don Quixote.

Take a picture in the green city park with its ponds and lush vegetation. Go to Gipuzkoa plaza and be inspired by the unique architecture of the Town Hall. Visit the Church of Saint Bizente Eliza, the oldest church in the city. 

Pass by the San Telmo Museum and soak up the vibe in Trinity Square. Be captivated by the Basilica Santa María del Coro. Feel the sea breeze as you view the seaside San Sebastián Aquarium.
