Bilbao and the Basque Country Sights

Monte Igueldo

  • Mountain–Sight

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 (€3.10 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 Epoque buildings, and the bay itself.
