    Beautiful walks around this amazing beach, wheelchair can be pushed easily around this promenade with places to stop and enjoy the views and scenery, despite the rain!

    Excellent views and well worth the walk up. Great little museum at the top. See the cemetery on the way up, as part of the history of the city. Crowned by the statue that overlooks all.
    Signage could be better and information boards need replacing.

    It's very nice to stroll through the narrow streets of the Parte Vieja. There are nice bars and shops. Also the square is very beautiful. It's a must see when in San Sebastian/Donostia.

    A nice refreshing hike up to the top that takes maybe around 45 minutes. You can also take the funicular if you don’t want to do it on foot. Either way you have to pay to enter which was around €2.30/each if you go by walking . They except card. You can also drive up as well. The attractions are old and cute. The view is beautiful but I’d recommend going on a sunny day if possible. There are rides, restaurants and cafes up there as well if you find yourself in need of a snack. We paid the extra €2.5/adult to go up to the lighthouse and we thought it was worth it. There are tons of old pictures and history to read about on the way up. We ended up taking the funicular back down because some nice strangers gave us a ticket. I’d still recommend the hike. 😉

    Worth visiting to see as part of a walk. Difficult feat to fix them into the rock - they have become part of the landscape battered by the storms that will feature here sometimes, yet they will ‘comb’ the wind on its way

    We came for the fish, so while the history part was good, we just kind of skimmed that part. The aquarium part is great. Really beautiful fish and presentation, and the tube is awesome. I do think there were too many people and not enough patrolling of the distancing. No one was enforcing the guidelines after the entrance, and it got a little crazy. At the same time, I get it; the clientele are mostly little kids.

    Lovely at this time of year- lots of surfers out enjoying the waves. Warm enough for us to paddle! Easy to access from Gros for a lovely walk.

    If you want to learn something about Basque culture and history, you cannot miss this place. On Tuesday it is free, but price is anyhow very accessible. Allow yourself a half day visit, you will not regret it.

    Great views- you can see why the Queen Marie Christina chose it as a site for her summer palace. Very good information boards give all you might want to know.

    And if you are lucky enough to have a tour guide, worth taking in the history and the meaning of it all.

    Quiet space for start of the day. Stark interior after grandeur and gold of churches to the south. Some interesting statues and a humorous addition to the model of the Cathedral in a side chapel!

    Mainly go to churches abroad as my wife loves to have a look around.

    This one is pretty good. Is has lovely architecture, a gallery and also a statue museum.

    €3 for entry is pretty good value for something that you can do in an hour

    It looks very pretty and it certainly helps to shelter the main beach, but it isn't easily accessible, out of the main season, though I believe you can swim out to it, at certain times of the year and they run boats there, in the Summer months.
