La Concha Beach

Constitution Square and the Old Town

Constitution Square is located in the heart of the Old Part of San Sebastian. It was an icon of the post-war reconstruction since the city was sieged and razed to the ground in 1813. Today it has become the main stage for the most important events of the city, such as the day of St. Tomás or the Tamborrada of San Sebastián. Pay attention to the numbers that are kept in each of the windows. They corresponded to the boxes that overlooked the bullring that used to be there. It is the ideal place to start getting lost in the beautiful streets of the Parte Vieja and enjoy the famous pintxos from San Sebastian.
