“Peine del Viento” sculpture


Description

One of the best-known works by the sculptor Eduardo Chillida. Located at the end of the Ondarreta beach, it is the perfect place to see the sea in all its splendour. This area of the city is one of the most visited by tourists and even locals themselves. The sculpture is formed by pinkish granite terraces and three pieces of steel anchored to the rocks. On stormy days, a unique sight can be seen with the waves rushing at the rocks of the cliff. The swell of the waves pushes water up through some holes in the ground, and it makes a very peculiar sound.
