Peine del Viento
  • Bus

Located at the end of the Playa de Ondarreta, in the western area of San Sebastián and at the foot of Monte Igeldo, the Peine del Viento is one of the most celebrated sculptures by Basque artist Eduardo Chillida. The monument was installed in this place in 1977 with the collaboration of architect Luis Peña Ganchegui. The artwork is a series of terraces built of pink colour granite and three anchor-like iron shapes welded into rocks. A magical spot where to enjoy views of sea and especially on storm days, when waves pound against the cliff rocks.
