    One of the most photographed places of San Sebastian and with its 75 meters high, one of its highest points, is the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. Practically visible from any point of the city, tourists who have come and will come in 2019 to the city will find it surrounded by scaffolding, as if it were the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. During this year, the façade of the temple will be in works for the rehabilitation of it and also of the central tower. The novelty in the reform will consist of the creation of a 360º viewpoint at 47 meters high that everyone can access through a metal staircase to contemplate the widening of the city. It can also be done free of charge. The restoration, in addition to the stone blocks, will be carried out in the 10 bells that presided over the cathedral, the largest of which is 1,700kg. The construction of the temple started in 1888  and finished in 1897 . However, the Cathedral category was not granted until 1953. It is currently the seat of the Diocese of San Sebastian.

    In any other place, a mountain next to the most touristic area, with wonderful views of the city, with a castle at the top, with a lot of history and easy accessibility would be a point full of tourists. All these conditions are met by Monte Urgull, however there are not many people who climb it. That is why we call it the great unknown. A place that in the12h century was an authentic military fortress thanks to its location and its walls, which have seen the history of the city and which of course were direct witness of that August 31, 1913 in which , during the War of Independence, the Old Town was razed and burned except one street. On the top of the mountain is a castle, Castillo de la Mota, guarded by its cannons. And crowning the castle we can see the Sacred Heart, 12 meters high statue that can be seen from any point of the city both day and night. Also known as Cristo de la Mota, it is a work of Federico Coullaut. But this is not all, because on the side of the mountain, right next to the Paseo Nuevo, is the English Cemetery because according to the legend the English soldiers who died during the first Carlist war are resting in piece there. The explanation of why the cemetery is there is simple. It is the northernmost point of San Sebastián, so that those buried there look towards England. But the most important question, how can we go up there? There are 4 different paths. The oldest one is found next to the Basilica of Santa María. We can also start the road in front of the San Telmo Museum, at the confluence of Mari and Virgen del Coro streets or in Paseo Nuevo. If, on the other hand, you do not want to go up the mountain, another option is to go up Mari Street, walk the whole mountain slope for what is called the priests walk, a nice walk from where you could see the whole port and the Bay of the Concha.

In its inauguration the amusement park housed, apart from some attraction, a casino. However, it was closed in 1925 because the game was banned. In that decade there were already attractions that continue to function today as the Swiss mountain or the mysterious river. In the next years more attractions were added and even two cinemas that closed in the 60s. But, why is too special visit this place?

      12:00h war siren   If you are having a walk around the city, eating a Pintxo or looking a store in the city centre and suddenly you listen a war siren don’t worry, there is nothing to worry about.   More than 100 years ago, there was a cannon in Plaza Gipuzkoa that fired a small contraption always at 12:00h. This happened because the sun was aligned with a magnifying glass that pointed directly at his wick.   In 1930, after the withdrawal of the cannon, the newspaper “el Pueblo Vasco” continued with the custom, but replacing the cannon shot by a siren. The newspaper closed in 1936, but the international watchmaking moved to the same headquarters and since then, they makes it sound every day. A siren that is heard from almost every point in the city.   IBI = + P Everyday, in la Concha beach, appears this curius jeroglifc. Is a protest against the tax of the houses... It means IBI=more poverty. Every morning, a man from Donostia write this... the the sea deletes it. Rockets of celebration… or not.   Other sound that you can listen, on weekends, are rockets. If you listen only one will be a bad new for the local people, but if you listen two they will be happy.   Following the tradition of the old Atotxa football stadium, in Anoeta, the new stadium of Real Sociedad (local team), rockets are launched when there is a goal.    Obviusly, when only one rocket is launched means that the team that is playing against the locals team score a gol, but if two rockets are launched mean that who score goal is Real Sociedad.     Roller Coaster? No! Swiss Roller Coaster!   Apart from the beautiful views of the city, the amusement park of Igueldo Montain has a peculiarity that not a lot of people know. It is one of the few amusement parks that the roller coaster is from Switzerland. The difference between both is easy. The roller coaster can be moved from one point to another, while the Swiss not. And the roller coaster of our lovely park was built on concrete, making it impossible to move to another site.   Cemetery in the mountain   Next to the Old Town we can find Urgul Montain, where you can go to see a beautiful view of San Sebastian. What not many know is that on the hillside there is a cemetery!   But is not a cemetery like other ones because is an english soldiers cementery. More specifically British soldiers belonging to the British Auxiliary Legion who came to fight in the Carlist Wars.   Butt, why are they buried in Urgul? The answer is easy. Is the northernmost point of San Sebastián, so that those buried there look towards England.   La Concha railing   Probably the most characteristic thing of the city is the railing that surrounds the beach of La Concha. But has a peculiarity because one of the pieces of the railing is upside down.   In this piece, the flower instead of facing the sea, is facing the street. At the moment nobody knows if was a human mistake or was made with all the intention.
