Fodor's Review

On the western side of the bay, this promontory is a must-visit. You can walk or drive up or take the funicular (€3.15 round-trip), with departures every 15 minutes. From the top, you get a bird's-eye view of the panorama for which San Sebastián is famous: gardens, parks, wide tree-lined boulevards, Belle Époque buildings, and the bay itself.
