Parte Vieja, San Sebastian - Donostia

(4.7/5 based on 2,800+ 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.

  • There a tons of pincho bars that you can choose and when you enter one of them you'll find yourself in a sea of pinchos. Enjoy! 
  • the old town is beautiful: lovely squares, churches, and then especially these typical alleys with bar tapas to do day and night!
