    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.

  • A nice walk up to the castle from the Port, and a great view of the bay of San Sebastian. Some interesting things from the Peninsular War - there's a graveyard with British soldiers, with an impressive monument carved to commemorate a battle in 1837.
  • Beautiful views of the city from here. It's a great place for a hike, there are several paths you can take to get to the top. Take a picnic and make a day of it, if you have the extra time in San Sebastián
  • It's a short but very steep hike up, but the view is worth it. I would recommend it for sure.
  • Beautiful view, worths the walk to get in the silence, above the blue blue sea, overlooking the beautiful bay
  • Beautiful Old castle under the arms of Christ with a fab view of San Sebastian Bay, Marina and the whole city.
