It's a great hike up around the hill to see both San Sebastian and the Atlantic Ocean! Most of the hike is pretty gradual, although there are a few steep spots. There are stairs at various points on the upper trails. The views though are great. At the Bateria de las Damas, you get a gorgeous view of San Sebastian... More

A less taxing climb than Monte Igueldo (although there is no funicular option with this one, you have to walk), but a gentle climb, lots of benches to stop en route and a lovely view from the top.

The hike is a pleasure. At the top you are rewarded with an old fortress. Lots of history here - Napoleon's sieges, etc. It was a rainy day and nobody was on the mountain. It felt like a movie set. So green and fresh smelling in the light rain. Great views from the top of La Concha Beach. A nice... More

Lovely walk, good views. The English cemetery also interesting, got us talking about history. Nice prelude to the museum nearby.

Great museum at the top, and free! Wall size video screens, select a year and language and its superb. Take time to walk around and appreciate the panoramic views of San Sebastián. Napoleons bastions and the English cemetery. Please note... There are no toilets.. Even in the museum.

Google maps failed there. Completely. We realized that after circumventing the mountain 360°. Then we just took the road up and got there. Great trail, all of it. Great view all over from all angles.

As compared to Igeldo, this mountain has not such a big reputation among visitors, but views are as nices as of the other mountain. There is also a library/museum about the history of the city (only open in Spring and summer), and it is an easy walk up. More popular among the locals, this hidden gem deserves a walk.

It goes almost without saying that the walk up the steep inclines of Mt Urgull is well worth the energy expended even if only to compensate a little for the excesses food wise that a trip to Donostia produces. However the views alone at the various stops would be worth it all as well. In addition the fort sites are... More

Near the La Concha beach, a walk up to the top will take half an hour or 40 minutes. Many good photo spots. There is a fort with a Christ statue at the top. A bit of history about the fort and the fire that broke out about a century ago make the place more interesting too.
