Donostia-San Sebastián - Monte Igeldo

Okay, here's the first of many posts about my beautiful hometown Donosti (the full name is Donostia-San Sebastián). If you want to get a first impression, check out my Polaroids.
Donosti is a small town located in Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, in Northern Spain and even though I traveled a lot it's the most beautiful city I've seen so far.

I'm getting started with what's supposed to be the highlight=last post, but never mind. The Monte Igeldo in the west of the city is one of the three mountains of Donosti, all of them giving you a spectacular view over the city and the Atlantic ocean. If you aren't to eager to climb it all, just take the funicular railway (one way 1,50 €) to get to the top. There you'll find some sort of (boring) attraction park that opened in 1912 and a tower built in 1778 which used to be a lighthouse, standing 184 metres above sea level. Buy an entrance and get to the top. In the inside there are many interesting photos explaining the history of Donosti but even though it's fascinating every information will soon be forgotten the moment you reach the top. There you get offered the most spectacular view you could ever imagine. Forget about Rio de Janeiro, this is IT!

Get in here

Just takes a few minutes

Stunning, isn't it?
