One of the best places in the world to taste the best tapas (pintxos) around, and enjoy a great & popular ambient. I recommend not to stay just in one bar, but better if you visit a few ones.

Very crowded during parts of the day, but you have to expect it. We also went when it was not so crowded and it was nicer.

In the heat you might have to get away from the beach: so then get lost in the labyrinth of the old town Donostia. Great fun, shadowed, small alleys, quirky shops and many pintxo bars!

It is the place to be during evenings. You can stroll the narrow streets relaxed and make stops for pintxos and cañas............ Nice atmosphere and friendly people

We had several fun nights in the Parte Vieja. Recommend a stroll around the square and sit on the steps outside the cathedral on Augosto street to take in live music and acrobats.

Nice to see the narrow streets of the old quarter buzzing with people walking around from restaurant to restaurant drinking and tasting the pintxos experience, the famous basque tapas. Very lively and perfect for the bohemians.
