One of the best views in San Sebastian. It's a quick and cheap ride up on the funicular and the stunning view is well worth the trip. There's also a small carnival that would be fun for families.

We took the funicular up and down , the view is breathtaking, apart from the beaches, the layered view of the mountains all over each other fantastic. Oddly enough there was lots for kids to enjoy also, the Restaurent had everything you could ask for.

Do not miss out on visiting Monte Igueldo. The view from the top looking down at Donostia San Sebastian is to die for ..... this really seals the deal on how beautiful the city is

About 5 mins, nice views, and lots to do at the top, and that's if you just go for the different views! I would strongly recommend going up the castle tower to the Best View in the World, and afterwards have a surprisingly... More

We were in a tour bus that went up the mountain but the road is narrow. Otherwise, cars shouldn't have a problem.
