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

Having caught the little tram up the mountain (takes 3 minutes) we were amazed by the incredible view of the city and beaches. On a clear day it must be quite breathtaking. The theme park was shut as low season so there wasn't a lot to do but take some photos of the incredible view. But it's a must do... More

This place is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. We walked along the beach to the Funicular and took a ride up the mountain in this cable car. It's cheap, old time - 102 years old and very steep. It looks to have only one cable pulling you up - so a bit scary. At the top is a lovely... More

I have walked the terrain of Monte Igueldo on several occasions during my lifetime. I especially enjoy looking at the vegetation, particularly the apple orchards where I used to pick apples. People should explore this offshore location while visiting San Sebastian.

The views from this location are superb and expansive! Take your time and soak it in...then let the kids enjoy some of the attractions. Most are for very young kiddies, but all seem to be fun in some way. Make sure that you explore, as you can be surprised what you can find just by walking around. You can drive... More

For adults the best feature is the view of San Sebastian -- awe inspiring! The kids and parents at the amusement park looked like they were having fun but we did not partake of the rides and attractions.

If you are in Donostia/San Sebastian for a few days, And the weather is nice, I recommend taking the funicular to the top of Monte Igueldo. We walked to the funicular station at the bottom of the hill, paid a reasonable price for a ticket, rode the funicular to the top, and had a liesurely stroll at the top, enjoying... More

The quaint funicular tram up the hill to this spot. the tram starts at the south end of bay behind the tennis center and is worth the price. Especially if the option was to walk up. A walk about the amusement park will soon conclude it isn't worth a visit - its not that great. But the views are something... More
