Donostia District by District: Old Town

San Sebastián is a city known worldwide; its beauty, its gastronomy, its culture ... make our city a memorable place. That's why it's easy to find people in love with La Concha or Monte Igueldo. But Donostia has much more to offer and to show it to you, we are going to visit some of the neighborhoods of the city. Each week, we will show you a new neighborhood through our properties, ready for the tour? Let us begin.


Old part


We start the tour through one of the busiest areas, the Old Part of San Sebastian. In these streets, the smell of the sea from the harbor is mixed with the smell of pintxos from the bars ; It is impossible to walk through this area without trying a bit of the thousands of elaborations offered by the innkeepers in the area. There's a reason why the Lonely Planet travel guide has described the pintxos of Donosti as the best gastronomic experience in the world.

In addition, eating a little will give us enough strength to walk the cobbled streets and visit the most important religious temples of Donostia: t

he Basilica of Santa Maria del Coro, the Church of San Vicente and the old convent of San Telmo, now converted into a museum.

And, in 1813, a fire almost completely destroyed the city. It happened on August 31 of that year, during the Spanish War of Independence. Of that fire, only one block of houses was saved, which today takes the name of August 31.

If you want a property in this historical street, we have what you are looking for:


Walking through these streets, we would arrive at the Plaza de la Constitución, home to the most important festivities of the city such as theTamborrada. And if we continue walking, we would end up on the Boulevard, the center of the city, but we'll leave that for another day.

So stay tuned, because in a few days we will publish the next part.
