Good views, lovely walk down

Yes the furnicular is a bit passed it and the mini fun fair at the top rather naff, but the views are wonderful and the walk down is lovely. Only problem there are no signs to it... read more

Took the funicular. View was spectacular over San Sebastian and the Pyrenees. Lovely tapas and sangria at the Kusella bar. Kids would be enchanted by the little theme park. Roller coaster has amazing view of the coast.

Decided to go up Mounte Igeldo when the tourist bus skipped Mount Urgull. Best experience of my trip to Spain. Beautiful and peaceful at 3pm as locals still out of sight due to siesta. Stuff can be expensive at the fun fair but water is all you will need when your breathe is taken away. Tram is reasonably priced at... More

We chose to go by car and paid 2,20 Euros per adult. If you take the funicular, it's 3,15 per adult. We were on Mount Igueldo before in December 2012 and we loved it. Now it was more of an amusement park for kids. We were happy to eat cotton candy though :-)

Beautiful views atop this mountain and the best part was the ride in the funicular. Spend the afternoon enjoying the views from the terraces above or have lunch at the restaurant there. Cute amusement park that will remind you of days gone by!

For incredible views of the beautiful Basque seacoast town of Donostia/San Sebastién take the teleférico or fanicular train to the top of Monte Iguedo. The spectacular views from the top are breath-taking. You can see the two main beaches, the town itself and the small nearby islands.

SO walk right through the fun fair and go down the road behind the WC. Go through the barrier and walk on about... More

Nice ride with the Funicular to the best view in San Sebastian. The old traditional fun park was very nice. Unfortunately the nearby restaurant was closed.

You can get the fernicular up here for about three euros return and the views are great. It might feel less desperate in peak season but at the end of May it felt like it was about to go in to receivership. Some pretty crap rides, some depressing looking donkeys and a Venture hotel.

This was probably one of my favorite stops while in the Basque Country. Take the classic funicular to the top, and there you will have the best view of SS and Playa La Concha. The funicular is roughly €3 for the round trip, very well worth the experience. There's a small fair like event for children, and a nice restaurant... More

Took the funicular up the mountain today (very very cheap, think it was 1 Euro 50 each for one way) and walked down the road at the back of the mountain to get down. The funicular was a bit of a waste of time really because one can't see anything BUT the views at the top when we got out... More
