Lovely hike of 2+ hours. The view just keeps getting better. Either looking down at the beach or just through the woods. Once getting through the toughest incline from the San Sebastian end the rest the hike towards Pasais was relatively easy

It's definitely worth to climb to Monte Urgull because you'll see breath-taking view - the whole San Sebastian from the one side of the mountain and endless ocean from the other side

The views from the top at the statue are well worth the effort to get up there. Path is well maintained and not a difficult trek. It isn't necessarily an easy stroll but given how high you will get, the effort does not seem as bad. Beautiful pictures of San Sebastian can be had by taking the time to go... More

There are a few different ways to walk up to the top and they all reach the top which is the huge Christ statue that looks down on the stunning beauty of San Sebastians' beaches.

Simply amazing and breathtaking views of the city and its beaches from Mount Urgull. It is here you will truly get to appreciate the beauty San Sebastian has to offer. There are a few relatively steep climbs, but there are a number of vantage points should you decide to take a mini break on the way to the top. The... More

You will be rewarded with lovely views when you reach the top. The museum and church also worth it. We missed seeing the redeemer in Rio, Brazil because of mist so this one is a good substitute.

Climb the mountain from behind the aquarium or the stairs behind San Telmo museum. There are maps all along the route and many different paths that you can take to get to the top or to different lookouts along the way. My kids liked the free museum at the top and the fort. The movie in the museum helped them... More

I'd been up here 7 years ago with some buddies. I remembered a bar up there but the route we took up (path starting at Santa Maria church) took us to the top but there was no bar along the way. The views are just incredible with a view of all three beaches and the whole city of San Sebastian.... More
