Castillo de la Mota Reviews
I absolutely love walking around these type of fortifications that were there to protect the harbour and the town. more »
Well worth the very healthy walk up to the top of the mountain to see the castle and more important to look down over the amazing city below. Fresh air, trees and peace. All for free. Lovely. more »
The hike all the way up can be a little challenging (even more during sunny summer days) but it is so worthy! I have been in San Sebastian so many times and this is one of my favorite places. The view... is just BREATHTAKING. The museum at the top of the hill is very interesting (free access) and you can see almost every corner of the city and the whole bay of La Concha from there. Don’t hesitate and take a couple of hours to go to the top and enjoy this not so crowded place! A true hidden gem!
Wonderful experience for our family- a lovely walk up cobblestone walkways and meandering green paths. The museum and castle are a fantastic place to learn a bit about the local history too! Probably a bit steep in places but a great for tiring out little ones looking for adventure! Total time walking up wandering around and walking down with two little ones 3.5 hrs.
