Monte Urgull, San Sebastian - Donostia
Categories: Mountains, Lookouts, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
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.
