San Sebastian, district by district

if your visit to 

Donostia/San 

Sebastian coincides 

with a match day, 

it will be a great 

chance to discover 

the atmosphere 

created by the txuri-

urdin fans (meaning 

blue and white, 

referring to the 

team’s colours).

A hundred years ago, when 

San Sebastian was already 

a top European summer 

destination, the Amara Berri 

district (Berri = new) did not 

even exist. Its land belonged 

to the marshes of the River 

Urumea, which had barely 

been channelled. There was 

Amara Zaharra (Zaharra = 

Old), which still exists now, 

a popular neighbourhood 

that emerged around 

, a perfect 

starting point for exploring 

the surroundings of the 

romantic area, where the 

area’s liveliest pintxo bars 

are found. At the opposite 

end to the bandstand stands 

the Euskotren station, which 

connects San Sebastian/

Donostia to the French 

border and Bilbao, travelling 

along the entire coast.

 is a leafy area 

where, in one of its corners, 

Queen María Cristina is 

remembered. Amara is 

arranged around three large 

It is best to return to the city 

centre along the 

, first along 

 

promenade, and then 



along Gernikako Arbola

 

promenade, where you can 



appreciate the buildings on 

Prim Street, which overlooks 

the River Urumea. This route 

has a pronounced Parisian 

feel, with no shortage 

of modernist tiles and 

landscaped courtyards. It is 

also the perfect route if you 

like to go running.

Look at the different 

architectural styles of the six 

bridges until you reach the 

sea. A real journey through 

time!

which have a wide culinary 



selection. 

The 


 

stands at the southern end of 

Amara and it is the stadium 

where Real Sociedad, the 

local First Division football 

team, plays its matches. The 

building houses a museum 

devoted to the history of 

this venerable club. There 

is a large concentration of 

sporting facilities around 

Anoeta, e.g. swimming pools, 

sports centres, a pelota 

court, a skate park, a cycle 

track, the Illumbe bullring, a 

multipurpose facility where 

the Gipuzkoa basketball 

team also plays its First 

Division games. They are all 

open, both for doing sport 

and watching a match of 

any of the sports played 

there. Want to take a close 

look at Basque pelota? 

Take a look at the season’s 

schedule at the Atano III. 

In the 

 district,  



which is also next to the 

river, stands the modern 

 and the 

Memorial Garden, which 

remembers all of the victims 

of violence, wars and 

terrorism. The church is the 

work of Rafael Moneo and 

its visual simplicity and 

minimalism are striking.

It is time to go back to the River Urumea, through 

the city’s most modern neighbourhoods, between 

parks and bars where they serve pintxos (tapas) 

and ‘hamaiketakos’ (a local form of brunch). 

On the avenue that overlooks the river there are 

several sporting temples, some with façades more 

reminiscent of Paris than San Sebastian and feats 

of modern architecture.
