  • This is probably one of the most picturesque Plaza's/Park's in San Sebastian and throw in the surrounding buildings and it is a fabulous place to sit and relax in before continuing your exploration...  more »
  • This place its just amazing, so inspirational in every way, just way ahead of the rest. So sad that in our visit last August Donosti was on "Semana Grande" and it was so full of people we couldn't...  more »

  • Pleasant enough very small park, has ducks in small pond and a few statues and features. One of the main bus stops for many buses in and out of San Sebastian. Surrounding shops are pretty expensive and often chains, head north into old town for more independent and interesting shops.
  • Lovely square, beautiful garden, plants and flowers are arranged well, harmonic and with somewhat oriental touch. A great place for a little rest in the sun, or if you prefer it - some corners in the shade
