Take the bus up and walk down. It's beautiful. We liked it more than Urgull because Urgull has a noisy park at the peak!

Worth a morning or afternoon to go to the top of Monte Igueldo. From the Funicular, to the slightly tacky kids funfair this is worth the visit. Best views of San Sebastian by far. Nice Cafe bar, good coffee at one of the little booths and not silly prices. Combine with a walk along the promenade.

Tram to the top for amazing views overlooking San Sebastian. Reminds me of the Peak in Hong Kong but a much shorter ride. Highlights: - Views: can look down on the town or the other way to the open water. Stunning - Cafe: tables up top is a perfect rest stop for some wine in the afternoon - Price: just... More

We took the cable car Funicular to the top and the views are just amazing - worth the ride for the photo opportunity. Nice restaurant / cafe at the top for a pleasant lunch and drink. Well worth an afternoon. Excellent.

This place really does offer the best views of the city. And there is a children's amusement park and hotel at the top. For taking photos, it might be better to go later in the day so that the sun is behind you when taking the photos of the city. You can go up on the funicular or hike up... More

Great trip for a family. The kids (4 and 7 years) enjoyed the funicular to get to the top. 11€ for a return ticket for the family was worth it. There was a fun park with a few attractions there. The house of horror was surprisingly better then expected and it can be recommended for kids. The views from the... More

I have been to San Sebastián a few times over the years and always resisted the recommended advice to take the cable car to the top of this mountain. What an idiot I have been. The view back over Donostia and the Vasco countryside plus the ocean and coast is breathtaking and beautiful. Also the cable car system is a... More
