This old Spanish Seaport Village is relaxing and offers many different experiences - beautiful architecture built on cobblestone streets, a seaport, a relaxing beach area, sculptures, and very unique dining options along with bars. This is an old village so it is perfect for walking. Take a slow stroll and just enjoy the beauty of the area.

I think this area would be good at any time because there are many bars and restaurants to visit. If we didn't have my kids with us, we would have probably gone at night. It has to be a fun place to people watch.

We loved to wander around the old part of San Sebastian in the evening. It is lively part of town, filled with bars and restaurants. A great place to sit people watching whilst sampling the sangria and various pintxos.

The old town is very pretty with many nice looking restaurants and tapas bars though they were more expensive than in the centre. Definitely worth a walk round.

Only pedestrians here. Lots of activities, shops and cafes. Lovely quaint narrow laneways. Walk around and get lost amongst it all.

Imagine that you could put together some of the beauty of Paris with some of the nature of Rio, add the glamour from Monaco and the good Spanish food and this might give you an idea of how it feels like to be in San Sebastian. It is very small area, but you will never forget it. Quite an experience... More
