Like to see the whole city from above? Go up to one of its best watchtowers, right in the centre.
Mount Urgull is one of the most important symbols of San Sebastián. In fact, it has played a very important role in its development. Thanks to its privileged views, this mountain was already an essential military point for safeguarding the city. The Castillo de la Mota is preserved from that time. Visit the House of History inside it, a museum that will transport you back in time so you can discover all the historical stages of the city. In addition, the old fortress is immersed in a green area. Walk at your own pace, surrounded by trees, and breathe in the sea breeze. At its northern end, you will find the English Cemetery. You will enjoy almost aerial views of La Concha Bay, without leaving the city.
