Discovering Pintxos around town
Pintxos are one of the main gastronomic attractions of the city. Typical of the city, our version of the tapa is served on top of a slice of bread, cold or warm...both delicious!
The main areas for trying pintxos are the old town (Casco Viejo), and Diputación and García Rivero Streets.
