“Don"t Miss This”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

If you are a lover of food then San Sebastian is a must! Any where in the Parte Vieja of San Sebastian is a paradise for tapa lovers. The bars are filled with the most unbelievable gourmet snacks you can imagine. Just look in thru the bar doors and you will want to go in and sample them all. Bar Goritta, Bar Haizea, so many to choose from, an endless selection of mouth watering treats, great wine selections, cold beer and the cider, loved this area.

“If you've seen one "old town" you've seen them all.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I have crisscrossed Europe over the last five years. I venture to say that we've been to at least 40 "historical sections" of towns. After a while they all blend together: centuries old buildings, beautiful churches, a palace or two, narrow streets, some statues, etc., etc. This one is no different.

“Required visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

You really can't visit San Sebastian without touring Parte Vieja. It is full of little shops, pinxto bars, restaurants, and other Basque delicacies like pastry and cheesecake. There are even a few little "chinos" or variety stores where you can find anything from the floor to ceiling displays of stuff. I wouldn't recommend staying in Parte because of the loudness and tendency for the Basques to sing into the wee hours of the night. They really know how to party hard and loud. Don't miss these wonderful, scenic winding streets of Parte.
