It was a hot late October day & we walked right along the beachfront before we started the climb. Didn't make it right up but our advice would be to take your own water as there aren't many places to buy it along the way - surprising as it's quite a touristy area. We finally found a place selling water... More

This is a short hike in San Sebastian. I went on a rainy day. It rained nonstop, all the way up and down but it was still a lot of fun. Great views of the beach from here. There is some history behind this fort and a museum. After the hike, go to the local bars and taste the Basque... More

It was a wet and windy day in San Sebastián , but we made the effort to come here. Stunning views from the top an excellent place for photos of the sea, stunning. You do need to be fit but you can take your time.

This attraction requires ability to climb stairs or inclined paths. But, after the effort, you'll be satisfied by the scenic view

My daughter and I decided to do the hike up to the Christ. We kept our spirits up with the views, the fresh air and the different pieces of history around every bend.

Monte Urgull looks over the city of San Sebastian/Donostia, with lovely views of the Bahia de la Concha with its beaches, Old Town, New Town, Gros and the surrounding hills. Climbing up the steps and paths to reach the top is a bit strenuous, but you can take your time.

After walking the crescent beach from our room to old town we decided to hike to the statue of Christ overlooking the city after a lunch break. After reaching the top of Monte Urquell we were treated to beautiful panoramic views and perfect weather on a fall day. Its an uphill walk, but not difficult.

Great short hike to the top of the hill rewards you with spectacular views of the city and provides a little historical context along the way. Pretty much our first outing whenever visitors came to town. Giant Jesus at the summit (which we always referred to as San Sebastian, just because) and also a nice little museum. And when you...

My daughter and I decided to hike up Monte Urgull. Absolutely breathtaking views of the town from 123 meters at it's highest point. Highly recommend it.
