Don't bother paying 2.2 euros to visit the top- we didn't...enjoy the walk up..and down. Great views of sea and town...little lighthouse.

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

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.
