Monte Urgull, San Sebastian

San Sebastian is filled with great walks around the whole city but the main one that stands out (literally) is the Monte Urgull walk. The hill stands overlooking the bay (only 123m tall) with a castle like structure and giant Jesus statue on the peak.

There are many different pathways to get to the top but whichever way you go you will get an amazing view of the bay and city of San Sebastian below.

The walk is about a one hour round trip, if you include stopping to take photos and having a look at the free museum up the top in the castle as well. (To get closest to the Jesus go through the museum.)

Also, half way up, just below the castle, there is a little bar where you can enjoy refreshments. Happy hiking!
