Inaugurated in 1911, Monte Igueldo has slowly but unstoppably morphed into the attraction that everyone knows in Donostia, combining tradition and modernity, the original attractions coexist with new ones. Monte Igueldo is an emblematic place for the people of San Sebastian and an unforgettable experience for the ones visiting it for the first time.
This privileged look-out has been known for being the host of a casino on its early years, then in 1925 as an elegant ballroom and finally as amusement park.
The endearing Funicular, picturesque and charming, was inaugurated on August 25, 1912. It forms an indissoluble whole with Monte Igueldo, two realities that cannot live separately. The Tower, which story begins as an old wooden lighthouse from the XVIII century, is another must from Monte Igueldo.
Nowadays, The 4 stars “HOTEL MERCURE MONTE IGUELDO” occupies the place where the old casino-restaurant was.
