Although its official name is Monte Aldabe, it is known by the people of Irun as Monte de San Marcial, due to the hermitage that was built there in honour of that Saint to commemorate the victory over the French in the battle of 30 June 1522.
It is a hill that is 224.8 metres high that can be accessed on foot, along any of the paths from the city, and by road; there is a car park next to the open piece of land. Several tourist alternatives are offered; you can discover the extensions of beech, coniferous and oak trees on the path that takes us from here to the Natural Park of Aiako Harria or you can choose shorter paths to activate your body whilst you enjoy our natural landscape. If you want something more relaxing, in the open piece of land of San Marcial you will find a recreational area that has been adapted to satisfy children and adults.
Take advantage of your visit to look out over the balcony of Bidasoa. At the viewpoint next to the hermitage you will get an indescribable panoramic view of the city, the bay of Txingudi, Hondarribia and the Bidasoa River; you really must see it!
