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

It is very well worth taking the 3-minutes ride on the 100-years old funicular from Ondarreta Beach to the top of Monte Igueldo to enjoy gorgeous views of San Sebastian bay. My wife and I did it on October 30th, 2014 and the weather was unseasonably warm, allowing for clear panorama. The local set up on the top is rather... More

In my opinion these are the best views in San Sebastian. If you are cheap like me and dont want to have to pay to reach the top, you can walk around the road all the way up there. the road is relatively quiet and it is pretty safe. look out for the stairs which allow for a few shortcuts... More

We took the funicular to,the top of monte igueldo. Fantastic little trip! Unfortunately when you reach the top it's like a disused fairground attraction. The views are tremendous, the hotel there a bit dated. The best bit is the funicular!

We drove to the top and paid the 2.50 Euros per person required to go through. There is an old theme park that seems to not be used anymore - at least in October? - but the views from the top made worth the trip and entry fee. Really amazing.

The highlight for me was the mode of transportation to get to the top. That is the Finicular. A rattely old box car being pulled to the top by a cable on tracks. Fun stuff. Once you get to the top, you are met with a spectacular view of San Sebastion. The top is also a mini amusement park for... More

To be fair, it was a misty day, however this was not the worst of the experience. We decided to walk up, which isn't very well signposted, so we walked up the road. After a long, hot climb in the humidity, we found we had to pay at the top- 2.20 per person. This was not communicated anywhere we saw... More
