San Sebastian / Donostia

Jump to last reply

I have some ridiculously detailed questions about San Sebastian / Donostia. ;-) Please bear with me….

1. Can I assume that pinctxos bars in San Sebastian are open late into the evening? Can I begin a pinctxos crawl at, say, 22:00 or later, even on a Monday?

2. If I’m reading correctly, the Michelin Green Guide recommends driving the Jaizkibel Road from Hondarribia / Fuenterrabia WEST to San Sebastian at sunset. I generally don’t like driving west at sunset, as the sun can interfere with my vision. Are there enough turns and things that offer shade that I don’t need to worry about the sun? What times do you recommend for this drive? (Before answering, you might want to look at my next few questions.)

3. I hope to walk from San Sebastian to Pasaia. i could walk back, but it looks like there are frequent buses from Pasaia back to San Sebastian. But perhaps I should instead take a bus on to Hondarribia / Fuenterrabia and visit it before taking a bus back to San Sebastian (assuming those buses run frequently)? Or hire a taxi to do that? Or visit to Hondarribia first, get myself to Pasaia (how?), and then walk back to San Sebastian from there? I seem to have lots of options -- please help!

4. I would love to have a special meal while in San Sebastian, BUT I don’t think I have either the budget or a sufficiently sophisticated palate for any of this city’s Michelin 2- or 3-stars, so I’m looking instead at Michelin 1-stars and Bib Gourmands as options for lunch on the day of my (late evening) pinctxos crawl. From my research to date, I’m looking at Agorregi, Kokotxa, Mirador de Ulia, Miramon Arbelaitz, and Txulotxo -- and maybe Alameda if it works with my plan to visit Hondarribia. Any and all comments are welcome!

5. Kimhe recommended Casa Vallés, and I am looking forward to a dinner there if at all possible. Am I correct in undertanding that it is open every day?

6. Kimhe also recommended the Orfeon Donostiarra. From what I can tell, there are no performances scheduled (yet) for when I will be in the area (mid-May) – if any of you know / hear otherwise, please let me know!

Of course, any other comments you wish to share are welcome! I’m currently thinking of staying in the Gros area and anticipate that I will spend most of my time in the city visiting museums, churches, and parks.

Thanks so much!
