The walk uphill is a nice opportunity to work off a bit of last night’s pinxhos, get some fresh air, meditate on the movement of the surf, and enjoy a bit of time and peace in nature. Start near the Basilica of St Mary, walk...More

When you want to have a great view of the city, this is the place to be. You can smell the ocean and look over the bay.

What a great place this is to get out of the city. You hardly have to climb the hill at all to be rewarded with fabulous views. There is a cute little bar serving drinks and coffee which overlooks the sea.

Really enjoyed an early morning walk up Monte Urgull. Yes, it is pretty steep at times, but we 50 year olds handled it easy. Great views of the city and out into the ocean. None of the reviews mentioned the museum at the top under...More

We set off from the museum and hiked to the top stopping on the way at various miradors, or viewing spots. It was a moderate climb taking about 20 mins. The way we went was cobbled and I stupidly did not have good footwear on,...More

Some public parking nearby but not at base of path. You can drive to the top but takes away from the experience.
