Monte Igueldo Tours

Monte Igueldo
One of two headlands that guard the entrance of San Sebastian’s La Concha Bay, Monte Igueldo stands to the west of town and offers the ideal vantage point for views of the bay, La Concha Beach, Santa Clara Island, Monte Urgull, and the surrounding hills. With natural beauty and historical significance, Monte Igueldo is one of the city’s top attractions.
 
The Basics

You can ascend Monte Igueldo by car or on foot along the winding Paseo del Faro (aka Itsasargi Pasealekua); alternatively, a funicular runs up the hill from Plaza del Funicular. Once you’re up, head to the lookout area for great photo ops. Most people visit for the panoramic view, but the small Monte Igueldo Amusement Park entertains families with 20 attractions, including bumper cars, a boat pond, a carousel, a gentle rollercoaster, and a haunted house.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Parking is free for those with an entrance ticket to the amusement park.
  • Attractions may be closed during rainy or inclement weather.
  • Should you wish to extend your time on Monte Igueldo, there’s restaurant and hotel at the top.
 
How to Get There
Walk or drive up Paseo del Faro from the Plaza del Funicular, or take the funicular itself. There’s also a bus that runs along Satrustegi Hiribidea to the Plaza del Funicular.
 
When to Get There

Go at sunset for romantic views—and to avoid the main amusement park crowds—or head up in the morning to beat the line for the funicular, which runs every 15 minutes. Opening times for the funicular, amusement park, and lookout vary depending on the day of the week and the month, with shorter hours and closures in the winter; check the website for information.
 
Peine del Viento
At the foot of Monte Igueldo, on the far western side of the bay, stands “Peine del Viento,” or “Comb of the Wind,” an outdoor work of art by sculptor Eduardo Chillida. A waterfront promenade takes you to these three pieces of curved steel, which have perched on the rocky coastline and withstood strong winds and water since 1977.
