A lovely selection of tapas from the bar we stopped in in San Sebastián’s old town. We paired a lovely light, refreshing local white (or two!) with some fantastic white anchovy skewers, delicious octopus and halved mussels, the latter two topped off with chopped onion and local green peppers. #WeekendAtCampo #sansebastian #spain #rioja #wine #tapas  (at Old Town San Sebastian)

Immediately on arriving in San Sebastián a couple of us headed down to the beach to walk through the crystal clear water before exploring the old town. #WeekendAtCampo #sansebastian #spain #rioja #beach  (at Playa de La Concha)

The view of the church from the entrance to Hotel Marques de Vallejo in Logrono. Fantastic location in the old town, I’d read recommend it for a stay. #WeekendAtCampo #spain #rioja #logrono  (at Hotel Marqués de Vallejo)

Locally grown hot peppers, fried with olive oil and in salt (the little ones are sweet and the big ones are very, very spicy) & tomatoes, also from the bar owners farm, onions (soaked in cold water for 3 hours to remove the bite & make them deliciously sweet) and tuna in Spanish olive oil. #tapas #WeekendAtCampo #spain #rioja #logrono  (at La Rioja)
