Certainly the view is spectacular though it is marred with restrictions on photography at the summit. Personally, I found the experience somewhat disconsolate. There is a feeling of decayed neglect at the summit with the fairground amusement forlornly empty serving to detract from the view. Seems as if people didn't linger long at the summit of Mount Igueldo which speaks volumes about the quality of the experience as an attraction.

Take the funicular (3E) from the bottom of the hill unless you enjoy a steep climb. (You can also drive up from Ondaretta). The views across San Sebastian are spectacular. There are attractions and rides for children at the top open in season,and also a pleasant cafe.

Loved seeing the attractions but sadly they only open at weekends despite the fact there were crowds of people looking at closed rides. However the view of San Sebastian alone makes up for the trip.

If you take the funicular up, around 3euros, it's easy to get to. The views from up top are great, but the rest of the top is very tacky with the amusement rides they built. Just ignore those and go for the view.

We visited Monte Igueldo just for the view. The furnicular station to go up is at the end of Ondaretta beach. It is not maintained well and the staff need to look a lot more happier to make visitors feel welcome. The return trip for the furnicular is EUR 3.10 per person.
The view of Concha bay, Ondaretta beach and Santa Clara island is fabulous from above. There isn't much else to praise about but for the view it is well worth the visit.
