Spain: San Sebastian - Concha beach seen from Mont Urgull

2 photos stitched.

Absolute worth the little climb to go to the summit of the fortificated Mont Urgull not only to see the big beach and the city from "outside" - but also the layered mountain hills in the back of this beautiful city.

From the net:

The Urgull Mount is the most significant historical heritage in the city. Located in the very centre of Donosti, it has yet to be discovered by many of its inhabitants, as it is a place they only visit when they want to show their friends and relatives from other places around. They take them to the top of the mount so that they enjoy the wonderful views or in order to see the Sacred heart statue presiding over the summit.

The Beach of La Concha (Basque: Kontxa Hondartza, Spanish: Playa de La Concha is a beach in the Bay of La Concha (Shell, in Spanish, due to its shape) in San Sebastián (Basque Country). It is one of the most famous urban beaches in Europe.

It is a sandy beach and shallow substrate, in which the tide fluctuation affects greatly the area available for use. It can be considered an urban beach in widespread use.
