Monte Urgull, San Sebastian - Donostia

(4.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Appreciate panoramic views of San Sebastián and La Concha beach from the top of Monte Urgull. Originally used as a military lookout, the mountain now serves as an urban park and features several historic structures, museums, and scenic vantage points. Tour the 12th-century castle that sits atop the mountain at almost 250 m (800 ft) above the city. Climb the castle towers for the best views of the Jesus monument overlooking the beautiful bay. Walk down to the city center through the historic port, where you can stop for a fresh seafood meal.

  • One of the most beautiful parks that I have been able to visit! Walking its trails is simply beautiful and mysterious at the same time, as can be seen from tombstones, to impressive monuments and beautiful birds, the viewpoint is simply amazing because that can be a full glimpse of San Sebastian. Highly recommended!

  • Highlight the great view seen in San Sebastian from the tip of the mountain, but beyond that there is no other recommended activity

  • San Sebastian Beach, but also mountains, Urgull in the city is a place to stroll and enjoy unbeatable views

  • This little mountain worth to be "climbed"! The view on the bay, the city and the atlantique ocean is amazing :) The view on the fortress is not the best one! I really advise you to go to the south view point on the top of the mount...
  • Great views
  • Our favorite place, hurried up not in is a small hill in the 123 m above sea level. Mota Castle, Christ the Redeemer, the Concha Bay views, such as how many times they would never get bored. It is recommended!
