One of the "must see" places in San Sebastian. Plenty of tapas bars, restautants, shops and of course old local houses and buildings.

The Parte Vieja is a must see. Very nice old cobblestone streets and historical places. Lots of bars and restaurants where you can eat a large variety of pintxos (basque style tapas). It is definitely a rewarding and unforgettable experience.
