The best views in San Sebastian? I bet on Monte Igueldo!

A tip from a friend led me to visit Monte Igueldo when I was in San Sebastian inAugust. There were some really fabulous views over the city from there, she told me.


Monte Igueldo is a little hilltop with an old theme park, and you need to pay the entrance fee to get in. But it’s worth it. (It’s only about 2 euros per person.) Stunning views!

The pictures do not do justice at all, as it was a little misty and the colours didn’t come out great. But the contrast of the golden sand from the long city beaches and the blue blue waters – just stunning.






Ever been to Monte Igueldo or San Sebastian? Isn't it just beautiful?

  7. Monte Igeldo is just amazing. I totally love it. did you take a rido on the "swiss mountain"? so fun. but there's no fee to enter, it's for free. you pay to go up with the funicular (that's totally worth) and to per atraction. but to walk and take pictures is for free.

    1. Thank you, Jesus. I didn't take any rides, I was just there for a short time for the views, before we headed into town for some (delicious!) pintxos and sightseeing! We came there by car, maybe that's why we had to pay to enter? I didn't realize that it would be free to enter if we came there walking or by funicular- is that how it is?

    2. could be. I've never been by car. always took the funicular from the bottom and then up to enjoy the best views in Spain.

      next time you're there you have to take a ride on the Swiss Mountain and look at the break system. I think it's the only one in the whole world!
