Parte Vieja, San Sebastian - Donostia
(4.7/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lots of bars where a drink you with a few really good tapas, variety to make a foodie's tour in few meters of unmatched quality. Critical only l, the number of people (for something will be...)

  • Stroll through the old part of San Sebastian is, without doubt, an experience worthy of repeated thousand times. Tapas, take a walk, enjoy. How much charm of this city.

  • The old of Sanse is a series of narrow streets filled with bars and restaurants. Today, you can find life with tapas bars vlasicos and at the same time, skewers of design with fresh foie gras or Iberian as the beti jai!
