Parte Vieja, San Sebastian - Donostia

(2,800+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
A collection of bars that regularly fill with visitors and young people sprung up in Parte Vieja during a tourism boom at the end of Franco’s dictatorship. Most of the neighborhood is dominated by 19th-century architecture built around the same time the walls surrounding the area were demolished. Take a tour of the fishing and recreation port, where you'll see a row of distinctive houses lining the front wall of Urgull mountain. The view of the houses from the port makes for a striking photo. Consider trying the fresh catch-of-the-day at one of the seafood restaurants. Put Parte Vieja at the forefront of your travel plans using our San Sebastian - Donostia itinerary maker.

  • Beautiful small streets that give a glimpse of the old city and architecture. The monuments are prominent and well-placed. In short, a nice little town to see and see again, we do not get tired.

  • It is a place with endless charm. Streets full of shops and bars with the best tapas of the Earth, for all tastes. With a festive and joyful atmosphere. There is always some event, mainly musical: chistus, choirs and dances

  • in the narrow streets of the old town, you can enjoy shopping and also very good food. The square is definitely worth a visit.
