Iturburu is a popular climb with cyclists and has been used in recent editions of the San Sebastian Classic cycling race.

The climb heads throughgreen countryside, finishing at a narrow pass under a bridge. Alto de Iturburu is a great climb to include on a longer route in the area.

Alto de Iturburu is open throughout the year.
