The Igueldo funicular (Basque: Igeldoko funikularra; Spanish: Funicular de Igueldo) is a funicular railway in the city of San Sebastián, in Spain.[1]

Igueldo Station

Located on the side of a steep cliff face, Funicular de Igueldo consists of two carriages carrying passengers both up and down on a single track with a passing loop at the midpoint.[2] Travelling the distance of 320 metres, the funicular connects Ondarreta Beach at the bottom, with the popular Monte Igeldo Amusement Park at the top, offering spectacular coastal views of La Concha Bay along the way.[3][4]
