Owner description: An old, pleasant neighborhood best known for its open-air food markets, where shoppers can buy some of the freshest and best-tasting fruit and vegetables in Europe.

Old part of town is a home of great market (Mercado de la Ribera) which I liked way better than more famous La Brexa in San Sebastian. Casco Viejo has interesting one of a kind shops, restaurants, some pintxos bars. Cathedral and archeological museums are also located there.

Loved this, real local flavour sitting in a local cafe listening to an exceptional guitarist, check out the cathedral for a moment of solitude

Get lost in n the old Casco Viejo area and enjoy the surprise in every small shop or bar . I suggest the visit in night time when the streets are full of conversing people and you can stop for a pinxo and a glass of wine

It is all contained within a loop of the river, so you are not going to get lost! A great place for a flavoursome lunch or late night stroll around the many bars and restaurants.
