Biking around San Sebastian - fun, and a good way the visit the sites- we happened by accident to find the funicular which we took one way, up to the top. Managed eventually to see through the fog, the beautiful coastline- reminds me of Cornwall! We then walked down, taking the St James Way to the starting point of the... More

Despite the fact it was a cloudy day when we went, it was still a worthwhile, lovely view. Relaxed family place to hang out.

Wonderful views of San Sebastian and the surrounding mountains. The funicular is great fun and very cheap. The fairground attractions at the top are a bit tacky, unless you are a small child, but the scenery is stunning.

Take the funicular up from the base of this mountain (just behind the tennis club) for truly spectacular panoramic views of the bay and La Concha beach as well as of the city of San Sebastián. There is an amusement park at the top as well, which was not running during our visit. A small restaurant offers some basic food... More

You can ride the funicular to the top. There is a hotel (with tower) and amusement park at the top. Worth the trip for the excellent overview of the city.

I visited this mount Igueldo believing it was just a point from which you may see a complete view of the city of San Sebastian. It is not only a point in the city where you may have some of the best views of the city, but also a very singular fair park where children and also afults will enjoy... More

Once you are in San Sebastián you can walk along the beach for about thirty minutes to the mountain foot to take the funicular up to the top. If walking is not an option you can take bus No. 16 near the tourist information with less than 2 euros. Once you are at the mountain top you can walk around... More

If you want to see La Concha Beach from above, you have to visit Igeldo. The view is amazing. You get a great perspective and you feel on top of the world. Is very cheap to get in. I think we paid 3€ for two people and then had a coffee overlooking the magnificent La Concha. I highly recommend doing... More

Take the train up the mountain, it goes every 15 mins and 1.75 euros one way and 20 mins walk down. Superb views from on top and easy gentle stroll down

We caught the furnicular up the mountain, and the views from the top are absolutely amazing. Very reasonably priced at just over 3 euro each way. You can walk around up the top and there is a hotel up there with a restaurant if you would like refreshments.
