The walk up is lovely, but I resent having to pay to enter the area at the top for the views - in my opinion there's a better view from Urgull, and no fee. The Funicular is a great feature, but is incredibly overpriced, the same can be said for the tower at the top (top views though). Nice to... More

Probably the best views of San Sebastian, overlooking the bay, and the town, It is a bit of a climb to the Napoleonic hill fort at the top, but it is very close to the old town for a refreshment afterwards.

I went there on a sunny winter day with my friends, and even though the amusement park was closed, we had a great time! It is a quiet place with branches to have a picnic with friends or fiancé. We climbed Monte Urgull the day before, but the experience of going to Mt. Igueldo ended up not being repetitive since... More

The furnicular went up a very steep slope to get up to the top of mount igueldo. There's supposed to be a mini theme park up there but I suppose it's closed during winter. Pick a day when the weather is good and the sky is clear to go up Mount Igueldo as the views are amazing. You can sit... More

There´s many places good viewpoints in San Sebastian, but this is by far the best. Take the funicular or walk up if you have the time, and get ready to be breathless with the views from up there, both of the city, as well as of the coast to the west.

We decided at 8 pm to overnight in San Sebastián on our way to Santander and had planned to book into the Mercure on Monte Igueldo, as this hotel chain normally welcomes dogs. The satnav led us to the top of the hill, but we didn't find the hotel en route. We did, however, find the lighthouse at the top... More

if you only have time to climb one of the hills framing the promenade, this is the one to chose. You can take advantage of using the inexpensive Funicular to get to the top of the hill (a brilliant experience in itself) where you'll find expansive balconies affording breathe-taking views of the entire city, (and the statue on the opposing...

If you're a connoisseur of photography, this is the best place to take immaculate pictures of the town. The amusement park captures the antiquity of the town, and for a brief moment you feel like you're in a time from 100 years ago. I recommend riding the bumper cars to feel like a kid again. I visited here in December... More
