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.

  • San Sebastian, I fell in love no doubt. I believe that it is the most beautiful city of Spain, this mountain with the small church above, is an example. As you're going up levels, you can see views of the beach, the Bay of Biscay... Undoubtedly beautiful, is a city that must be visited at least once in life, I'm desando return. Rising walk, it is physically somewhat expensive for those who are not accustomed to walking, but the effort is worthwhile.

  • Not too many visitors dare with Urgull. Certainly have to upload to the walking - only two months of summer settles down a line of minibuses-, but it is a real gem. Walks between trees with the sea and the city appearing between cavities, walls loaded with war stories, calm, the absence of noise, the scarce amount of people, make it be a marvel. Clearly recommended. You will not regret it.
