Not sure I can add any more to the reviews already posted. Beautiful park - quite steep and cobbled in places so may not be suitable for elderly or infirm but there are definitely paths you can take a wheelchair or jalopy on. We have been in this park a few times and didn't get bored as there seem to... More

Spring glades led up to impressive views of San Sebastián beaches and districts rolling away to forested mountains. Great orientation in both history and geography. Easy climb with lofty rewards.

If you happen to get bored of lying on the beach then walk up Monte Urgull. The views were stunning and the climb not too dificult.

Had a lovely morning walk up through the winding pathways to the top of Monte Urgull. Definitely worth the effort as it's such a tranquil place with wonderful views.

We took the Nile up to El Christo hoping for a great view and that's what we got...it isn't a difficult hike but the reward is worth it...gorgeous view over the harbour...fabulous photo opportunity

It's an easy climb up Urgull from the Old Town. The views from the top are great, although it can't beat the views from Igeldo on the other side of the bay. Nevertheless, this place is way more tranquil and isn't converted into some theme park. There is a bar with a stunning view near the top which is a... More

It's a good one hour hike return with both side views of the beach and the city. The Bella Easo views from here are a treat for the eyes. The placid bay of La Concha and the birds singing background in a beautiful and enjoyable summer noon

A little exercise, great views, peaceful surrounding... My firends and I liked this so much that we started 3 days in a row with a quick trip up to the top. I am really not sure how anyone could visit San Sebastian and not take a nice little hike up to El Cristo and take in the views of the... More
