Don´t know why but this is one of the most unique Casco Viejos I´ve been to in all Spain. But then the same can be said of most of San Sebastian, and maybe it´s the chilled vibe from being a beach town. Cute little shops, restaurants and bars lined up in tight streets and tons of pensions on tops, near... More

My wife and i spent each evening of our recent 3 night stay in San Sebastian walking the streets and drinking from bar to bar, sampling Rioja, Kalimotxo and consuming our bodyweight in delicious Pintxos. All of the bars were really friendly, each Chef taking pride in their gastronomic creations, some were closer to artwork than food and it appeared... More

Parte Vieja is a very vibrant and fun place to be soaked in the Spanish culture of tapas and party. Everybody seems to head down here to have a drink, and just catch up with everyone else. The fun is contagious and I will recommend anyone to visit this old town and some of the best pintxos bars are found... More

This place seemed to be permanently busy, lots of pinchos, tapas, small bars and people. The small shops are also wonderful with lots of different and exquisite things to purchase. We stayed opposite La Concha beach and just wandered in and out of here as we desired - it is very busy and also a bit dark- high buildings block... More

I have traveled to San Sebastian, Spain on many occasions, even in fact, once living in a nearby town called Zarautz. San Sebastian has both lovely beaches, shopping areas, wonderful hotels, and especially, great restaurants. It is one of my favorite places on earth.

Enjoy the pincho scene by night, going from one to the other. Very lively. By day visit sights such as San Telmo Church with wonderful paintings by Catalan last century artist Sert, depicting main features of Basque character.

I visited the old town with a Greeter from Donostia-San Sebastian Greeters. She showed me very interesting buildings and told me about the gastronomic societies and the history behind the street August 31.
