  • Climb on Mount Urgull (the one where the Christ statue is visible) is to commit solely to species. Castle de la Mota is a free application to route and landmark, where to go. A little zaplutav asked on the way returning from the top group of Spaniards path correctly keep the Castle de la Mota? The issue has put them in complete stalemate. Having consulted endlessly among themselves and checking the phone gladly answered "Si, SI!". The fortress is where something remains of walls, somewhere nice preserved ramparts, gun, flags. And at the top is the statue of Christ that bottom looks more effective than near. And my advice-check closing time not to accidentally be locked upstairs, if you find yourself here in solitude (evening people a little, or we just lucky).

  • It is worth climbing up to above to see the fabulous view that gives us the city! Tired, but butt!

  • Places certainly very well but admission is charged. We can get in the car attention sometimes narrow passage but we're stuck with a toll of € 2.20. The views are stunning as life sea, on the Bay, the Islands... top to do.

  • 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.

The area just south of the beach heading inland is the Romantic District, where you'll find some of the city's most beautiful architecture and the main shopping area.
