El Peine del Viento

Eduardo Chillida (1924 – 2002) was one of the most prominent Basque sculptors of the 20th Century and his work has always been very much linked to San Sebastián, the place of his birth. In addition to the famous Chillida Leku (a monumental museum dedicated in body and soul to his work), the highlight is the sculpted ensemble known as the El Peine del Viento, (The Wind Comb) which is situated at the end of the bay of La Concha and is made out of three pieces of encrusted steel placed on rocks that look out over the Cantabrian waves.

This is a magical place in which the land meets the sea and its visitors are exposed to the force of the wind and waves. Without a doubt, a great tribute that Chillida gave as a gift in 1976 to his city and that enhances the wild elements thus making Donostia a unique location.
