About Monte Urgull, San Sebastian

This place is rated as the most important historical heritage of the city. The main purpose of this mountain is actually to get a mind blowing view of the whole city and the sea. But other than that there is also a castle known as the La Mota castle that is situated up there and dates back to the 12th century. There is also a Jesus statue up here which is the mark of the peak. It can be seen from all parts of the city.

The castle here is accompanied by a number of other formations that are probably ruins of early structures. The castle is said to have been remodeled several times due to consequent attacks, especially by the French. The last and most dangerous attack in the 18th century left this place completely abandoned. It was later decided to turn the place into a lovely park by demolishing a part of the fort but the work was stopped mid way. The place was designated as a National Historical Spot and all efforts were taken to conserve it.

The most recommended activity out here would be hiking. You can enjoy a hike from 3 different points among which the best is to start from San Sebastian Old Town from the right end of the port at Mari Street. Along this way the difficulty level is a little higher but the views on the way compensate the stress completely. Another and an easier route is the ‘Preist’s Route’ that starts from the same place but takes you on a round trip of the mountain. This has a flatter terrain so you do not need to climb much. Apart from these you can also start from the San Sebastian Aquarium.
