Art and nature in harmony Editors' Note

Located at the end of Ondarreta Beach, below Monte Igeldo, Peine de los Vientos is a fantastic exhibition space, an harmonious combination between architecture, sculpture and nature’s work.

Peine de los Vientos, huge sculptures created by Eduardo Chillida, have been placed on rocks all around the beautiful natural plaza, which remains open to the sea and its rushing waves, as they flood the square.
