There is not a single child in the Basque Country that has not been at any time in Monte Igueldo amusement park (built in 1930) and there is noboby, that having visited the city, has not passed by this incredible hill of Igueldo to enjoy the spectacular views over the Bay of La Concha. That is an axiom
Well then, this emblematic project began to take shape on August 25, 1912, in times of the Belle Époque, when the business society Monte Igueldo became a reality its project of constructing a recreational center in, at that time, growthing area of the city. In that project the complex was born with a restaurant, the Casino, with is ballroom and a cable railway. Likewise, it was constructed a tower that today has become an authentic symbol for the city.
The day in which the inauguration of the park was published on the media of Gipuzkoa, the place was presented as the one of “the nicest views of the world” and certainly, it is so; the views from here are priceless.
Today, inside this complex we can find the modern and comfortable Hotel Mercure Monte Igueldo, dominating the city and the bay, to no more than 10 minutes away from the Old Quarter and La Concha beach.
It offers to the visitors 125 wide bedrooms with a distinguished decoration and equipped with a terrace from where you will be able to delight in its wonderfull panoramic views.
Among the facilities of the Mercure Monte Igueldo hotel stand out a huge outdoor swimming pool and some beautiful gardens, as long-lived as the very same property, in which the clients will relax and have outdoors.
Hotel Mercure Monte Igueldo counts with a great “a la carte” restaurant as well, where you may enjoy the best of the Basque cuisine.
Monte Igueldo is a private enclosure and because of that, to get in and do not pay the entrance fee, the hotel guests will have to show at the park entrace the hotel reservation. The uncovered swimming pool is openend from july to september.
