The Monte Igeldo Amusement Park is an area of leisure and fun for children and adults, with a slightly retro air drawing you backwards in time. It was inaugurated on August 25, 1912 and today it still remains in operation. You can reach the park by car or funicular, but we recommend the funicular for its authenticity. The panoramic views you can see are one of the best in the city: a perfect vantage point of the San Sebastian bay.
Funicular 10:00-22:00 (every15 minutes)
Buses that go the funicular: 16
The San Sebastián Aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in the Basque Country, with 300,000 visits a year. It is an obligatory stop for all visitors to the city. The Aquarium stands in one of San Sebastián’s most picturesque spots, the harbour, right next to the Old Town, with its enormous gastronomic selection, and only a few minutes from the city centre.
The San Sebastián Aquarium occupies an emblematic building dating from 1928, with two floors dedicated to the maritime and marine heritage of Gipuzkoa. Particularly interesting is the skeleton of a northern right whale in addition to numerous tanks dedicated to the Bay of Biscay, in which you can view more than 200 species, not forgetting the famous 360º tunnel and a variety of tropical species.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (12:00), you can see the Aquarium divers feeding our bull sharks, rays, turtles ... on the large Oceanarium.
Open from 10am to 20am. Weekends, bank holidays, July and August, open till 9pm
