Full description
Starting in beautiful Zuloaga Plaza in San Sebastian’s delightful Old Town, your expert local guide will lead your group in an exhilarating walk up Monte Urgull, a picturesque hill overlooking the city. First, stop at Batería del Gobernador for spectacular views over the Gulf of Biscay and the popular Zurriola surfing beach in the Gros neighborhood before continuing on to see the English Cemetery. Next, continue up to the charming old castle and the city’s history museum. Your uphill walk ends at the foot of the Sacred Heart statue, where you’ll get the best views over the city. Visit the castle jail on your way back down and stop at another viewing point to hear about the region of Gipuzkoa and to get an overview of its now legendary food culture. Pass by a battery of cannons, called Las Damas (“ladies” in Spanish) for amazing views of the city and Concha Bay. Your tour will end on Subida del Castillo Street, where you can admire some street art and a work by the famous street artist, Bansky.
