Parte Vieja, San Sebastian - Donostia

4.6
#1 of 6 in Neighborhoods in Basque Country
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.

  • It is a lovely place, but above all remember points of reference since all streets are similar.

  • The old town is a place full of life. The influx of people to its bars, restaurants and businesses makes for people permanently. Good area to chop some skewer and take the pulse of the city.

  • From the shell and the port up to the bridge of the kursal, between the boulevard and the Atlantic more authentic, at the foot of Urgull this this engambre of streets, squares, corners and churches full of life and ancient culture of a city full of charm. It is worth to enjoy a walk that very few indifferent, and enjoy their chiquteo and superb local cuisine. Essential.
