Best Pintxo Bars in San Sebastian

Gastronomía
What does “pintxo” mean? Although they are similar to tapas, generally speaking, pintxos are smaller. The name comes from the Spanish verb “pinchar” meaning to poke or stab. Historically, pintxos used to be served on a small slice of bread and have a toothpick piercing them through the middle (thereof the name). However, with the evolution of Basque cuisine, pintxos have become much more diverse and these days only some of them are pierced to a piece of bread. Pintxos or pinchos? Sometimes you will see these bite-size appetizers referred to as “pintxos,” others as “pinchos.” Both ways are correct. Throughout the Basque Country the most common spelling of the word is “pintxo” (which is the correct spelling in the Basque language), however the Spanish spelling (pincho) is used sometimes too
Undoubtedly one of the essentials pintxo Bars of Saint Sebastian. Both for their cold pintxos and their rations. The best pintxos: octopus, cheeks and seasonal vegetables.

Parte Vieja, also known as the Old Town, is the heart of San Sebastian. Despite its name, it's actually not the oldest part of the city (that honor belongs to Antiguo), but it is the most lively. Parte Vieja's pedestrian-friendly streets are flanked by centuries-old buildings that house a plethora of restaurants, shops and bars. It's considered the best nightlife spot in San Sebastian, as well as the best place to grab pintxos (the local term for light bites, similar to tapas). These two tend to coincide among locals, who begin their nights out pintxos barhopping. If you're not a night owl, you can still find things to do in Parte Vieja. Pintxos are served all day and there are a few architectural gems that warrant further exploration. The San Vicente church, located next to the San Telmo Museoa, is the oldest in the city, dating back to the 16th century. Basilica of Saint Mary of the Chorus, found at the base of Monte Urgull along the bustling Calle Mayor, is also located in this neighborhood. Meanwhile, Plaza de la Constitución is an excellent place to rest your feet and watch the world go by. Keep in mind, though, that the plaza's restaurants may be pricier than other parts of the city due to their central location.

Once the walls had been demolished in the late 19th century, successive work carried out on the new part of San Sebastián gradually gave the city its layout as we know it today. The new town was very carefully planned, with an extremely elegant 19th century design and eclectic style. The most remarkable aspect of the new town is the feeling of unity barely interrupted by a handful of modern buildings. Outstanding among these are the San Sebastián City Hall, opened as a casino in 1897 which attracted important personalities such as Mata Hari, Rothschild, the King of Belgium and the Shah of Iran to its fiestas, until 1924, when gambling was forbidden. On 20th January 1947 the building became the city’s Casa Consistorial, another name for the city hall, when its headquarters were moved from the Plaza de la Constitución. Standing right on the Concha Bay, with the non-stop hustle and bustle of the Old Town behind it and facing the quiet Alderdi Eder gardens, the City Hall is well worth a look. The Plaza de Gipuzkoa is a real oasis in the city centre, with its duck pond and imposing Neo-classical building, home to the Provincial Government of Gipuzkoa. The Buen Pastor Cathedral, also opened in 1897, has an ogival arch style taking its inspiration from medieval churches in Germany and France. Proof of this inspiration is the sharp spire that crowns the church, making it “the tallest building in San Sebastián". Particularly notable on its main facade is "The Cross of Peace”, work of the sculptor Eduardo Chillida. Occupying 1,915 m², this is the biggest church in the city. Continuing into the city’s new town you will come to other interesting features: The Plaza de Bilbao, a pretty square with an impressive fountain, was built for improved access to the Estación del Norte train station. María Cristina Bridge, the most elegant on the River Urumea, with four little temples taking their inspiration from the Alexander III Bridge in Paris. Paseo de Francia, across the river, alongside the Estación del Norte, a romantic stroll with a French feel to it, with its “Wallace” fountains and early 20th century mansions. The wall along the river bank sports the railing that decorated the Concha promenade until 1910. The year 1912, outstanding in the history of local tourist development, saw the opening of the Victoria Eugenia Theatre, the María Cristina Hotel, the new spa La Perla (which replaced the former wooden building), the Monte Igeldo funicular railway and the “mole” (railway linking San Sebastián to Irún). In July 1912 Queen Maria Cristina opened the hotel named after her. In its more than hundred years of life, the elegant and sumptuous rooms of this hotel have served as accommodation for aristocracy and royalty from the start of the century to the latest Hollywood stars, not to mention musicians, writers and myriad personalities of international fame. The Victoria Eugenia Theatre, opened one week after the Maria Cristina Hotel, is a Renaissance sandstone building. Ever since the first performance of “The Sun has Set in Flanders" by the María Guerrero company, the theatre has housed the city's major cultural events, including the San Sebastian International Film Festival. From 2001 to 2007 the theatre was completely refurbished to give it greater stage space and a more modern appearance while endeavouring to preserve its original essence. Recent pedestrianisation of this part of the city has turned it into an urban shopping and leisure centre, with small, long-standing specialist shops and others belonging to the big chains within an area easily covered on foot.
