“Funicular”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

You get a great aerial view of Bilbao from the top of the Funicular. Good number of Cafes and Restaurants at the top. Free if you have a day ticket. Try going at night, Restaurants open till late.

“Great Views of the City!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

The Funicular is a nice experience. It costs about 1 euro and takes just a few minutes to get you to the top of the hill. There are several restaurants there too. The views of Bilbao are outstanding . Visit after you've toured the city so you can spot the landmarks.

“Worth the trip for the views”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is well worth the 95 cents each for the half mile trip up the mountain just to see the views from the top. There is a nice parkland area at the top with a couple of restaurants.

“Easier than walking up”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

It was a pleasant enough ride up and down. And there was a nice park at the top, but that was it. We walked around a bit and saw a few bars and restaurants that we didn't go into. We would not put this at the top of our must-do list.
