Parte Vieja, San Sebastian - Donostia

4.6
#2 of 107 in Things to do in San Sebastian - Donostia
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.

    Quaint local streets, people at all hours of the day and an infinite number of bars and clubs where to taste the typical snacks that go well from morning to night. hard to resist ... Li would like to taste them all! Start with the classic Gilda (olives, chillies and anchovy) ... then let your throat and your imagination!
