This is a great hike at the edge of Old Town. At the top is an old fort crowned with a huge statue of Jesus that is visible from most of San Sebastian.

Nice hike up 350ft of elevation to the old fort overlooking San Sebastian. make sure you explore all the off shoots for a variety of views of the city and the sea. Pretty informative museum at the top. if you are tall, be careful of the stairs in the fort...they are made for smaller people.

We did this on a rainy day in San Sebastian and it was great! Fun workout to the top of the hill that you see from La Concha beach. Easy enough for kids to make it up (we had our 6 year old and a 9 year old with us and they both did great). Lots of folks with dogs as well. Really cool views at the top and a surprisingly good small museum that's worth a quick exploration.
