Parte Vieja, San Sebastian - Donostia

4.6
#1 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Basque Country
A collection of bars that regularly fill with visitors and young people sprung up in Parte Vieja during a tourism boom at the end of Franco’s dictatorship. Most of the neighborhood is dominated by 19th-century architecture built around the same time the walls surrounding the area were demolished. Take a tour of the fishing and recreation port, where you'll see a row of distinctive houses lining the front wall of Urgull mountain. The view of the houses from the port makes for a striking photo. Consider trying the fresh catch-of-the-day at one of the seafood restaurants.

  • The old town can get quite crowded but that is part of the fun. There are hundreds of restaurants here serving Pintxos. We ate here every night we were in San Sebastian and were never disappointed.  more »
  • So many restaurants "for tourists" with tasteless pintxos. It is best to check in advance on the website about a bar or restaurant which is best to visit. Of course expensive to the city centre and tourist spot
