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.

  • He had uploaded a long time ago to Mount Urgull and this time I liked so much as the first. The road is steep and paved in part and asphalt in others. We have loaded the baby in the carrier babies and I am glad because climb with truck would have been an ordeal and so you can get by the corners and stairs that there is. The walk is very nice, with the greenery that there are here and the views above are beautiful. I find it a must-visit if you come to San Sebastian. And if you don't desire to climb slopes always you can take a walk by the road of the priests, which surrounds the mountain but is plain.

  • Montee Urgull in the Basque region of Spain is worth the climb for a spectacular view, it may be difficult for people with mobility issues as it is rather steep. The landscape below is spread out like...  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.
