Awesome 3D tours of Mount Urgull in San Sebastian

Last year, we showed you some incredible 3D models in Spain built by Peterg Pedro Domecq, otherwise known as ‘Gipuzkoa3d’. He’s back again with some more excellent models, this time with a great tool to show them off.

Urgull is a hill in the heart of San Sebastian, Spain, and was a defense point in the 12th century, with walls and military structures installed in the 16th centry. It also saw some action in various wars in 1813, 1823, 1836 and 1876. The city council now owns it.
When you visit Urgull3D, you’ll find quite a few ways to explore the area. There are options down the right side to fly you to various aspects of it; clicking the name will fly you there, and checking the box will display the clickable icon on the map for more info.
