A Wild Paradise at Ten Minutes' Walk
Most visitors never cross the river from the Old Part, and the vast majority overlook what has to be one of the most beautiful hikes from here to California. At the edge of Gros, a trail heads up some stairs (at the end of Calle San Francisco) and continues for hours, all the way to the neighboring village of Pasaia. It's a family-friendly trail in terms of difficulty, and the views are breathtaking. A must-hike.
