Monte Urgull, San Sebastian - Donostia
(4.7/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • Mount Urgull protects the old part and the Donostia of the winds and rain from the North Pier. It is a super natural park located in the Centre of San Sebastian, where you can enjoy beautiful walks and great views, especially in good weather. For years was the space which I starred in my games, where you can enjoy reading comics, comics and books in the children's library, during the summer. A territory that knew inch by inch and that we enjoyed intensely. I recommend to start the walk from the Church of Santa Maria, going up towards the front of the priests, to direct you from there up to the battery of the ladies. Follow your path above the new ride, to get that cozy environment that is the cemetery of the English, and from there, go to the male. This is an example of the walks that you can give, but there are other many wonderful journeys. Enjoy all of them.

  • A short ride up the mountain takes you to an amusement park from which you can see all of San Sebastián.
