Stay.com Editors' Note

Located in the south part of San Sebastian, Monte Adarra is a preferred leisure location among donostiarras (the city’s inhabitans), as well as international or regional tourists.

The entire area of Monte Adarra is home to several megalithic art vestiges, small stone monuments dating back from the Bronze Age. Monte Adarra is also the perfect place to see the sunrise on January 1st, which soon became a beloved tradition in the area.
