Pintxo bars

zeruko-11There’s something for everyone in San Sebastián, Spain’s food capital. Hundreds of pintxo bars all over the city offer fantastic food at very reasonable prices. Many bars are traditional, with hams hanging from the ceilings, whilst others have developed modernist menus and have trendy decor to match.
