Monte Urgull, San Sebastian - Donostia

4.8
#1 of 6 in Nature in San Sebastian - Donostia
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.

  • It was disappointed that there is a bus that goes to the Castle, right in the big week, when the city is filled with visitors, including people with disabilities, regularly remove this service.

  • The day visited him there was a race, what was grace climb with all the calm of the world as others ran. The ascent is pleasant and not required to be in shape. The views are beautiful and at the top there is a very interesting free Museum.

  • Several option to go up, by bus, kable car, own car and walk. Very nice view of the bay and San Sebastian. But at the end, a lot of children playground, with children it must be fun.  more »

  • Wonderful views of the city. Aim to climb up early in the day to avoid the hundreds of tourists at the top
  • Great view. Look at the sunset 🌅🌇
  • 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
  • One of the best panoramic San Sebastian, essential to pass through here.

The area just south of the beach heading inland is the Romantic District, where you'll find some of the city's most beautiful architecture and the main shopping area. For a first-hand experience of the city's acclaimed gastronomy and
