It felt like a higher trek than that. I went up the slightly rickety steps next to the beach, rather than the leisurely road over-looking the sea. The museum at the top was free but only in Spanish and Basque, and was quite generic. The...More

A must do whilst in town. Combines with a walk along the coast line plus the docs area. Excellent views from the top. Outside of eating and drinking the best thing to do in SS.

It's a beautiful hike and on top you can see all of San Sebastian! It's not too hard, even for those who are not used to hikes (like us). It took us about 2 hours, including the stops.

The climb can be hard(especially if you are pushing a baby stroller) but the hard work is worth it. There is a small museum in top that has free entrance and allows u to to to the top(under the statue of Jesus).

We walked to the top to work off the many pintxos. Different routes up, we walked along the harbour and up at the sculpture. We went to to top then came down the other side for views over zuriolla beach. Well worth a walk round.

You can spend an hour or two walking up this hill and looking around. The walk is of moderate difficulty and not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs or I think for children under five years old. When you arrive at the top it is beautiful.

Although I believe you can get a bus to the top, I took the rather steep path and steps from behind the museum of San Telmo - having rained a little earlier in the day, this wasn't the smartest of moves, slipping as I did...More

While going up the mountain is definitely worth the effort, which of the two routes to take may give you pause. We happened to choose the path near the San Temo Museum entrance. The alternating dirt and stone walkway was a fairly steep and steady...More

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