The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Savor the Tastes of Spain in San Sebastián


4. Insider’s Tip

Eduardo Chillida's El Peine del Viento XV is hidden among rocks in a remote section of the bay.  

The beloved open-air museum dedicated to the works of famed Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida closed to the public last year, but you can still find his sculptures scattered around the city. You might stumble across some on the promenade of La Concha beach, but his most sublime work is also the hardest to find. To see El Peine del Viento XV ("The Wind Comb"), walk along the beach toward Monte Igueldo, but take the Paseo de Eduardo Chillida all the way out until you see the waves crashing against Chillida's breathtaking iron sculpture.
