We took the funicular railway to the peak and were rewarded with some excellent views of La Concha beach and San Sebastian below.It was busy but the were plenty of good vantage points on a sunny Sunday morning.

The best view from San Sebastian. The bay and the island are wonderful from igueldo Mont. The forniculare is the best way to go there

You're going to get the same views (or similar) at the top of Monte Urguell. The amusement park up here is currently either closed permanently or undergoing renovation.

Not really into making bad reviews but this place was a disgrace and it should not have been open The best view in San Sebastian and the worse hotel like I said dont like writing poor reviews just felt sorry for the staff working there. Just one positive note the cleaning staff were great

Take this short funicular ride up for breathtaking views of Donostia - San Sebastian. It is a short ride but very beautiful.

Just a short ride with "feniculare" and you're at the top of the hill with one of the most amazing city views I've ever seen.
