  • It is a very central urban park is not that the importance that has. It is better maintained than in the past. It has much of the history of San Sebastian, but you have to know something to find it. The penalty is that all the explanatory signs are vandalizados for years. There is a Museum of history of the city in the castle of la Mota (on top), but it is closed most of the year.

  • A privileged location, overlooking all the views of the city and its coastline, this castle is also so well-groomed, carrying visitors more sensitive to other times. Not to be missed, okay every step that costs climb up to it.

  • This is a must if you want some great views. Quite steep but well worth the effort and you'll get some great photo's  more »

  • Beautiful Old castle under the arms of Christ with a fab view of San Sebastian Bay, Marina and the whole city.
  • Great view, nice little museum with old stories about the town. Worth the hike up the hill.
  • For a short easy hike visit the statue of Christ on top of the mountain between the beaches. It takes around an hour to walk up at a leisurely pace. There's a bar on the way up if you need to stop for refreshments or admire the view. To reach the bar: find a library; from there find directions upstairs to a Castle; follow the stairs along green hedge. The park officially closes at 9pm in summer (in reality, gates close bit later), and the bar closes before sunset in summer time--and definitely before park is closed.
  • Nice place to walk around in San Sebastian, with good views out over the city and beaches.
  • Great views over the city.
