During my visit to San Sebastian, I constantly found myself in Parte Vieja. This area gets 5 stars just on food alone. Too many options that it is impossible to point to a best choice. Beautiful design for an old town and good photo opportunities throughout.

This is the old part of town with its' narrow cobble stoned streets and abundance of casual dinning and drinking options. Kind of a must do place.

Walked about on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Interesting small streets with lots of casual pinxtos dining options. Streets could be a little cleaner but not so much as to be a problem. During our walk, there was an interesting procession, complete with musical instruments going toward the cathedral.

. I would imagine that this is why the majority of people come to San Sebastian. The huge number of Pintxos bars on the narrow streets full of people all looking for their next snack is unbelievable. There are also a couple of squares and a lovely church. You have then got the port by the side, and Mount Urgull... More

Bustling streets full of pintxos bars. Fantastic food in a great atmosphere. Lovely cobbled streets and cathedral. Surrounded by the sea on either side.

Great vibe in the old part of town, lots going on and the walk around the port and up the hill to Urgul is fun. An abundance of restaurants competes the package.

so much to see, so much to eat, so much to discover. the historic center -though not really the most historic part of town despite the name- offers many different ways to explore the area..even in the rain! eateries are all over displaying their amazing goodies, so be hungry and prepared, also for great shopping and special display of color...

The crowded, small streets, the overflowing pintxos bars, even the tacky souvenir shops make several hours in the old town of SB well worth a visit. Stop and tapear for bit. Shop. And just stroll. It's so worth it.

The old town is a must see. There numerous Pinxtos bars where you can eat sublime pinxtos with a nice glas of wine. If want it special take a glass of sparkling Txakoli.
