With the funfair at the summit we weren't sure what to expect but the short ride up on the funicular was well worth it for the views.Much less tacky than expected with a self service bar terrace to enjoy a beer whilst overlooking a great city and bay.

I got the little train up to the summit of Mount Igueldo with my friend and was amazed at the panoramic view over the beach and bay; it really was breathtaking. There is a little theme park and other attractions so you won't be bored!

Walk up the hill starting at the funicular. You will have pretty much the same view plus much better views from the lighthouse and will be sparred of the cheesy fair, rude people, abusive price and bad music.

The funicular ride to the top was only a few euro. It leaves every 10 mins or so and takes all the hard work out of the climb up to the summit of Monte Igueldo - especially on a hot day. Once above there the views are spectacular - right across the bay and beyond. We got some lovely photos... More

The Monte Igueldo Amusement park is nothing like you expect. I actually is a bit run down and old fashioned. But.... what makes it worth the visit is the incredible view over San Sebastian Harbor and the surrounding area. A lighthouse, a winding road down the rear, the sea view. I had a blast shooting images and even though the... More

The Monte Igueldo is a great fun place in clear weather offering amazing views of San Sebastián, a small affordable fun park for kids and kids at heart. The funicular tramcar takes you to the top from the early 1900's pavilion behind the San Sebastián indoor tennis centre. Trip up and back is 3.10€ and most rides at top are... More

Although I enjoyed the ride up Monte Igueldo and the view the rest was rather disappointing. The old amusement park was bizarre in such a setting and the restaurant was horrible. The view however is spectacular!

If you are looking to get some exercise from all the pintos easting this is a great place to do. It's not too difficult of a hike, but definitely great exercise. As you are hiking to the top you can enjoy some wonderful views. From the top it must be the best view in the city. There is also a... More

Stunning views from the tower with wonderful old photographs of the area. There is a funicular from the bottom and strangely a fun fair for the children.

A pure hidden treasure. The old style is amazing and so worth a visit. The funicular is an experience in itself. The rides are definitely not for the thrill seeker but they're perfect for the younger child.
