Monte Igueldo#4 in Best Things To Do in San Sebastian
Located on the western end of La Concha Bay, Monte Igueldo is a hit with travelers for its arresting vistas and attractions at the summit (just a few reasons why visitors preferred Monte Igueldo to Monte Urgull). At the top, you can get an eyeful of La Concha Bay, Monte Urgull (situated directly across from Monte Igueldo) as well as panoramic views of the Bay of Biscay. An amusement park also sits at its peak, offering everything from a sky-high rollercoaster to fun houses to go-carts.
Travelers say the views from Monte Igueldo are unmatched and so breathtaking that you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not visiting while in San Sebastian. To get to the top of Monte Igueldo, take the funicular located at the base of the hill, which can be found a couple blocks from Ondarreta Beach. Round-trip funicular tickets cost 3.15 euros (around $3.50) for adults and 2.35 (about $2.50) for children. Hours vary by season, but the funicular is generally open every day from 10 a.m. to 9 or 10 p.m. and departs every 15 minutes. Hours of operation at the amusement park vary greatly depending on the season and if there's a public holiday. Consult the Basque Country tourism board's website for the amusement park's hours of operation. There is no admission fee for the amusement park, but rather a charge for each individual ride.
The lookout point charges 2.20 euros (about $2.40) for entry and shares the same hours as the funicular. You can also drive up to the top of Monte Igueldo or walk up the paved road, but some travelers say the walk is long and steep. You'll also find a terrace cafe at the peak if you'd like to purchase food or drinks. For more information about Monte Igueldo, consult the attraction's website.
