  • It is now a ruin but the walk is nice and the view from the top of the city and the ocean is deserving.

  • This offered a wonderful hike and great history. Fabulous views from all over, especially the top. And the cutest bar about half way up. Enjoy a cidra while looking down on San Sebastian.  more »
  • Nothing better to whet the appetite that climb the mota Castle and take a look at the landscape that is emerging from the inside of the Museum which is free... highly recommended on a sunny day

  • If you don't mind doing a bit of a steep climb I highly recommend this walk because you will be rewarded with stunning views! The structure itself is a great piece of San Sebastián's history. Try to go in the morning before the crowds get there and remember to take a bottle of water especially if it's a sunny day.
  • Nice view of complete town from top of the hill... Good walk to the top.. we saw locals coming over for a run/exercise...Good place to visit..
  • Nothing exciting here. Nice view of the area. Small, natural area for walking around and getting some exercise.
  • The best view of the city. It is hard to walk there, but there are microbuses. Very small museum, but interesting facts about the city through the ages. It is worth going just for the view.
  • Very beautiful place, scenery is amazing and the view, perfect! Based on the the side of town so for the view the walk is easy. Highly recommend.
