Climbed the Urgull starting from the San Telmo Museo side and it was a steep climb to see the Jesus statue but was worth it. Plus the views up there were spectacular. It was awesome to see the museum up top and to imagine how...More

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.

This was a great walk to the top. It was one of the few sunny morning. It was great to see and smell the ocean from up so high. Totally enjoyed it!

An incredible walk up from the beautiful San Sebastian seawall. A beautiful hike up from the Atlantic side provides a less intense climb with incredible views the whole way up. The CASTILLO DE LA MOTA on Monte Urgull is wonderful to explore in itself! I...More

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.

There are a small amount of stairs that needs to be overcome before you get your treat, which in this case is a superb view on San Sebastián. You get all three beaches, the football stadium (Anoeta), Santa Clara, the other mountain, and of course...More

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

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